Research Project

The research project will act as a capstone to integrate and apply much of what has been studied in the coursework. In the 7th semester, all students who have secured a CGPA of 3.0 and above, will be given an option to complete a research project of 6 credit hours in their chosen area of specialization provided that there is a faculty member willing to supervise the research project. The research project will be completed in the 7th and 8th semesters, supervised by a permanent faculty member of the institute and will be evaluated by a research evaluation committee constituted by the Director.


In order to graduate, every student shall have to complete an internship program, of at least 9- week duration, at any time after the completion of their fourth semester, generally during the summer. The purpose of the internship is to expose the students to real-life work environments before they graduate. Student may arrange internship for themselves at any of the following that may serve as a host institution: (i) a government organization, in any of the three main branches of government, executive, legislative, or judicial in national, provincial or local governments, or (ii) an autonomous body or attached department of a government agency, or (iii) a business enterprise, or (iv) an academic institution. The Career Advisory and External Linkages Office (CAEL) of the institute will liaise with employers to arrange as many internship slots as possible. The internship would be non-credit but is a mandatory requirement for the award of degree. Students will have to submit an internship report on the format/template provided by the institute and will be evaluated by the Internship Evaluation Committee.
