Annual Research Week

GTU wants to see that Master’s and Doctoral theses approved by GTU for the award of degrees should be, on the whole, as good as those at any good University of the world. It has therefore started implementing the concept of a Research Week for reviewing the theses, every year.

This is a unique step to improve the quality of thesis; Experts from all over India and some from outside India come together to review the work of research students of GTU. All the students are required to make a presentation in an open forum.  This year, the Research week was organized from 12th – 17th March 2012. In all 2349 research students presented their work. The number of research students, who presented their research work for review was as follows:


While the morning sessions, from 9 AM to 2 PM, were Review Sessions, the evenings were used to organize 43 Workshops by the visiting experts from IITs, NITs, Central labs, Industries and some other reputed educational institutes like NIPER from India and some from outside India.  Tens of parallel review sessions in different sub-fields in the morning and a number of workshops in the evening made the Research Week look like a Kumbh Mela of experts and researchers.
