More will come

Our department is committed to ensure our students engage with the best people in their field. We regularly facilitate various forms of interaction between eminent scientists and our faculty and students. Such opportunities keep us abreast of the cutting edge knowledge; these talks also provide a platform for our students and faculties to strike up partnerships with the eminent international scholars.

In addition to providing inside views that no textbook can teach, such events also provide participants with unique opportunities to expand their networks. Attending these events enables students to broaden their knowledge about the world, especially in areas that they do not cover in their courses. That is why we planned to regularly welcome renowned guest speakers to share their experiences and insights.
