Tehreem Husain reports on the Bartlett School of Construction and Project Management’s recent doctoral Away Day

CPM Away Day 2017

The Bartlett School of Construction and Project Management recently celebrated its PhD Pre-Christmas Away Day on 27th Nov, 2017 attended by about twenty students and staff members.

The session was aimed for students at all stages of their PhD. The Away Day focused on imparting students with knowledge about successful strategies to publish in relevant field journals, learning to manage supervisor-student relationship and resulting expectations and on giving a brief on various qualitative and quantitative methods that could potentially be employed for a successful research strategy. The all-day event was made interactive through group work engaging students to work in pairs to identify on possible ways to achieve impact and outreach in their academic careers.

The day also comprised of really useful presentations on PhD regulations and answering queries of students. The last session was very interesting as it comprised on drawing the personal experience of Dr D’Maris Coffman and Professor Andrew Davies on what they think constitutes the best way of becoming an established academic. It gave students the practical insight on the paths that these academics had followed to achieve esteem and success. The day was closed with a delightful Christmas dinner at Bellaria Restaurant.
