Date and Time: 2nd of May 2019

The College of Engineering is planning to organize a symposium for all graduate students in the college to present their research proposal or thesis progress report in either an oral or a poster presentation or both. This event aims to place graduate students and engineering professionals in an atmosphere of educational excellence that will allow them to explore new ideas and their supervisory committee to follow up the thesis progress.

This year the attendance will be compulsory for all PhD programs who finished their thesis proposal and optional for Msc students in the college to present their ongoing research thesis. The overall objectives of the symposium are:

  1. To discuss the current situation, challenges and advancements relating to their PhD research thesis.
  2. To share experience and best practices on their work.
  • Faculty in the college of engineering will serve as judges for groups of presentations sharing similar themes or representing common areas of study.  The Symposium will be concluded with an award for the best oral and poster presentation to exemplary presenters.
  • PhD students who "pass" Research Proposal should present his/her work orally.
  • Students who fail to attend will lose their grades in the progress report that will sent to the college of graduate studies at the end of this semester.
