BDU is undertaking Masters and PhD defense programs virtually
Bahir Dar University is successfully conducting thesis, dissertation and proposal defense programs in online platforms.
Following the outbreak of corona (covid-19) pandemic, it was a recent story that students have returned back to their homes. In these times, teachers have been doing their best to support their students at home by sending them books, assignments, tests and other essential inputs to help them stay in the t-learning. As an extension of this effort, currently, different academic units in the university are holding thesis and dissertation defense schedules as well as proposal defenses.
As part of the effort to be an e-university, Bahir Dar University has created a strong Information and communication (ICT) system. This unit has so far created and integrated different softwares that have facilitated many systems. The cumulative result of that effort to be an e-university has now made the different academic units in the university to effectively undertake defense schedules of graduate students virtually.
In the virtual defense sessions held, as it has been the trend in the face-to-face sessions, the student presenter, graduate students, supervisors, examiners and participants all have taken part.
