Research Assistant

  1. Jul 2, 2010 #1
    Hi friends.
    I am a Mechanical Engineer going to attend an interview for the post of a research assistant for my post-graduation. I do not know what field am i going to do research in. It could be design,thermal or manufacturing. Though I have more knowledge and interest in design.
    I want to know, in general, what skills should a research assistant needs?
    I have sound theoretical knowledge of Mechanical Engineering and I have built some machines. Is this enough?
    Thank you in Advance.

    I think this question would be better in the career advice section.
