Annual Progress Seminar:

Every twelve months after joining the program, a PhD student must deliver an Annual Progress Seminar (APS). The student must compile a report describing the research that has been performed in the completed year and submit it to the RPC. The student must then deliver an open seminar in which all interested members of the department are free to attend where he/she will be examined by the RPC. The objective of the seminar is to provide feedback to the research completed by the student in the past year and provide suggestions for continuing and refining his/her research. With the progress of a student's PhD, the work presented is expected to evolve from a thorough understanding of the fundamental concepts and reported literature to an in-depth solution to a novel research problem. The RPC lays emphasis on publications in reputed international journals and also encourages the student to present his/her work in international conferences and workshops.
