The Papua New Guinea University of Technology (Unitech) has made a reasonable progress so far in terms of postgraduate studies and research. All the 13 academic departments have the PG programs up to the PhD levels. Currently, there are about 200 students in different PG programs including 9 PhDs. Two of the academic departments are also offering their Master courses in Distance Mode. As a part of internationalization, there are 8 overseas students from the Caribbean, Fiji, Solomon Islands and East Timor under the EU funded projects (CARPIMS, BULA). Under the same arrangements, some of our staff are on PhD Programs at the University of South Pacific (USP), Fiji; and at the University of West Indies, Trinidad. We are expecting another Master student in 2017 from Botswana under the sponsorship of the Association of the Commonwealth Universities (ACU). The university annually organizes the research presentation by the postgraduate students to showcase the PG studies and research capabilities; communication and presentation skills to the wider community to encourage development of research culture at Unitech and PNG as a whole. Student research projects include many important areas that would make positive contributions in the PNG society and its economic development. University academics, students, staff and other stakeholders from the related organizations/institutions attend this annual event which is a hallmark of Unitech. A total of 52 PG students from different PG programs are going to make the presentations during 03- 04 November 2016.
