Recently I asked the question What is PhD Level research? and it was closed as too broad.
I was worried about the broadness of the question and that's why I tried to limit the question to the "US context for Engineering/STEM fields".
However, it was still seen as too broad. Is this related to me listing my impression of the "standard" PhD process?
Before I posted I read the Meta post Is “What background do I need to do research in specific field X?” on-topic at Academia.SE? and was under the impression that, my question would be of a similar scope.
How can I do to modify the question to fit well in Academia?
