BUID revels in the increasing record of PhD Graduates from the university

The British University in Dubai commends the additional fifteen latest PhD graduates who joined the rising number of PhD degree holders of the university for the past 4 years. This recent batch of graduates added to the 50 overall PhD graduates of BUID to date. These graduates obtained doctorate degrees in Education and Project Management.

This growing number is expected to grow as four students are now candidates for graduation as they currently defend their thesis this month, and many more students are expected to finish their PhD programs in the coming academic year 2017-2018. These programs in BUID include PhD in Architecture and Sustainable Built Environment, PhD in Business Management, and PhD in Computer Science.

The past three months have been busy for graduate students conducting their Viva in and around the campus. It has been a challenging and intellectually exciting for graduating students to defend their thesis from distinguished guest professors of the University to serve as external examiners for their Viva requirement.

The Latin word, Viva, meaning oral examination, is part of the requirements of the PhD Programmes of the university. The doctoral thesis Viva is normally supervised by two or more examiners from other institutions, who have the expertise in the topic or field of research by the students. Exclusively behind closed doors, each graduating candidate defends the thesis as part of their requirements to successfully obtain their PhD degrees.

BUiD provides training of PhD students for Viva in preparation for the defense of their research work or thesis. This Viva training supports the students in understanding the significance of the entire Viva process and its elements, and helps to prepare them for a successful completion and satisfactory execution of their doctorate Viva.

BUiD Vice Chancellor, Professor Abdullah Alshamsi said that the University reinforces its research and development reputation in the UAE education sector every year, and that 2017 is no exception as they have proudly added a new group of high-calibre graduates who will share their experience and knowledge to their respective fields.

An extensive list of PhD and Masters Programmes are offered at the BUID, and many students in their respective expertise and knowledge have advanced from the degrees they have earned, or in courses they have attended while finishing an undergraduate course or fulfilling graduate studies as they work on full time jobs.

BUiD has been recognised in the UAE education sector as the leading research based university, offering programmes that emphasizes on research and development.
