A good PhD proposal is a prelude and requirement for a S2 docent to get a place to enrol into a PhD program at a university, local or abroad. It is also a requisite by sponsors of scholarship for them to fund the PhD study. Hence, it is essential for the docents to attend a structured program/workshop on how to prepare a good proposal.
The workshop will be conducted by Associate Professor Dr Ismail Mohamad and Associate Professor Dr Ismail Said from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM. This workshop is intended to equip the docents from Faculty of Science and Technology with the knowledge on how to prepare PhD research proposal. We would like to share our expertise and experience to UIN Alauddin Makassar. This is a free academic service from UTM and IIUM to docents of UIN Alauddin Makassar and neighbouring universities. This three-day workshop is aimed at S2 docents who are keen to read their PhD in 2018.
Dr Ismail Mohamad is teaching Mathematics at Faculty of Science, UTM, whereas Dr Ismail Said is teaching Landscape Architecture at Faculty of Built Environment, UTM. Both have been teaching at UTM for more than 32 years. Furthermore, Dr Ismail Said was an academic manager at the School of Graduate Studies in UTM from 2014 to 2016.
Dr Nurul Nadiah Sahimi is the Dean of Faculty of Education at Universiti Tun Razak in Kuala Lumpur. Her area of expertise is on children’s environment and early childhood education.
