Seminar Title: Saving Time in Thesis and Article Writing Strategy Using KSI Technique
Date: 11 October 2017 (Wednesday)
Time: 10.00 am - 12.00 pm
Venue: Auditorium Jurutera, Faculty of Engineering
Writing a thesis proves very difficult for most postgraduate students. They may carry out research with ease but writing the research documents in the form of a thesis is something they cannot seem to do with ease. More often than not, a postgraduate students will naturally be in a dilemma as in how to put things together in writing his or her thesis. This led to failure to complete the thesis within the stipulated time. Statistics gathered by several research bodies with interests in postgraduate research suggest that this is a problem which spans disciplinary boundaries and indeed is common to postgraduate research in both the social and natural sciences. The postgraduate students do not complete their theses in the allotted time due to slow start, particularly in the area of problem formulation and literature review collection and inadequate collection of data due to poor planning. For example, in the area of note-taking, referencing, and so on. Thus, the objective of this seminar is to enable postgraduate students to save time, increase quality of thesis writing, fast publish review paper and research findings and reduce mental stress. Writing technique of general Introduction, Literature review, Introduction, Materials and methods, Result, Discussion, and Conclusion under each experiment will be explained in details according to KSI (Keywords, Sequence, Importance) technique. Finally writing system of Summary, Recommendation and Abstract will be clarified. The expected outcome is to enable postgraduate to graduate on time (GOT) and publish papers in reputable journal.
