To enable our research students to broaden their understanding and to keep abreast with the latest developments in their field of study, candidates pursuing the Ph.D. degrees on full-time basis can apply to the school for conference support to attend conferences, subject to them meeting the eligibility criteria:
Full-time Local and Foreign Ph.D. Students only.
Students must be presenting paper(s) at the conference. Conference support will be granted selectively to student whose paper(s) is accepted for poster presentation.
Student must be in his 2nd, 3rd or 4th year of candidature.
Student has made good progress in his research project and the above conference support is not an entitlement but the approval is based strictly on performance.
Application form has to be submitted preferably no less than 6 weeks before conference commencement date.
There will be no conference support for M.Eng. students. Hence M.Eng. students applying to attend local conference is expected to self-finance the conference expenses.
For Overseas and Local Conference supports and application, please obtain the information and form from intranet website.
