We achieved another milestone in Research Committee Seminar series by successfully completing the 2015 Academic year. This weekly seminar is a hallmark of the PNG University of Technology that brings the academics, staff and students together in a common forum to share and disseminateresearch findings to wider university community. This seminar series is the best forum not only to disseminate the research outcomes to wider community but also to train the young academics and postgraduate students for their presentation skills. There are lots of enthusiasm in the Unitech community as expressed though the participation of academics, staff and students. The continued success of the seminar series also demonstrates the commitments of Unitech to develop scholarship and research culture of high standard.
A total of 27 seminars including two from overseas academics and one from the University of Goroka were presented in 2015 on diverse subject matters. As a University, we have to carry this forward to strengthen and build the research culture at Unitech which in turn will enhance our standing as a university and help our bid for program accreditation.
