              Research Supervision

                                      Research students under Masters programme work under the supervision of faculty members. The supervisor is responsible for
                                      the initial definition and plan of the research problem assigned to the candidate. Supervisor suggests reading material and
                                      attending any necessary course(s) to enhance the candidate's understanding of research topic and may also ask the candidate
                                      to present seminar(s) with the progress of research. Supervisor regularly and closely monitors the research student / research
                                      assistant and reports to Advanced Studies and Research Board (AS&RB) on quarterly basis about the academic progress of the
                                      candidate via concerned departmental head and the Dean Engineering.
