Department of Mechanical Engineering, IIT Delhi   

Weekly Research Seminar


Day: Every Wednesday

Time: 3:45pm onwards (about 1.5 hours)

Venue: ME Seminar Room (II-422)


The Ph. D research scholars of the department present their research work during 15 min slot on every Wednesday for the general awareness of all other students and faculty. Each Ph. D student MUST present at least once in a year, besides giving one SRC presentation in another semester to get SATISFACTORY grades in both the semesters.


Faculty members, particularly, the supervisors are KINDLY requested to listen to the presentations by their students in order to give useful feedback. Other faculty members are also SPECIALLY invited to listen to the seminars in order to provide suggestions which are expected not only to improve the quality of presentations but also the quality of the research by the students.



Brief guidelines of presentations


All students are encouraged to prepare good presentations in terms of not putting so many equations as there are students from other specializations who may understand that much in depth. In order to make the presentations more entertaining, one may put a lot of pictures, graphs, and even animations/videos in their slides. Audience is also encouraged to ask questions to make the sessions more lively, interacting and effective.

2. Only change possible is to swap your slot with another student with mutual consent. Both students should make a request by email to both student and faculty coordinators.
