Supervisory arrangements of candidate programme training
Read the following text paying attention to the stages of candidate programme training and researching, to the predefence similarities in the RF and abroad. Make up your own glossary to be used for discussing the preliminary defense of your thesis. Write one or two pages describing your experience in the field of research (your reasons for independent study and your plans and current professional responsibilities).
There is a greater need to get research students more involved in researching and teaching process. The large majority of research students of Siberian State University of Railway Engineering are engaged in significant research projects, which develop railway industry and other related areas. Their expert findings contribute significantly to technological progress and economic strategy of RZD Company.
Each novice researcher work in libraries and university laboratories using various types of equipment and railway facilities. They have the right to teach undergraduate students and participate in research expeditions. Undertaking teaching, research students form a useful resource for the university departments though they need support in this role. To make the research students more effective in teaching our University has developed and implemented a scheme to provide training in teaching skills to them.
The research supervisors induct new candidate students into their environment. As supervision requires close personal relationship, the supervisors guide candidate students by hints and tips providing them with firm guidance and feedback. They monitor the progress in fulfilling the individual research plans and control their business trips and teaching loads which can influence their research effectiveness and the quality of their thesis. As new research students start their work typically with little or no experience in doing research and are faced with the necessity of ensuring "breadth" as well as "depth" in their investigation, the experienced supervisors help them by sharing their own experience.
The relevant departments annually evaluate the effectiveness of candidate studentsТ studies. The junior researchers must present their reports describing the progress being made in preparing the thesis as well as in preparing for the candidate examinations.
