Academic Facilitation

From Term 1 to 5, the students will be assigned to an FPM faculty as research/teaching assistants for fifteen hours per week. Apart from this, after the successful defence of their thesis proposal and until the end of the third year, students will be required to take up research and teaching work on campus. Such work, besides opening up research avenues, should contribute to the student's learning and experience.

FPM students will be encouraged to present papers, which have been submitted to and accepted at professional conferences. FPM students will also be required to publish research papers in refereed journals.

The institute will provide a laptop to each student at the time of registration after admission. The laptop has to be returned to the institute when the student finally leaves the institute.
