IUIU RESEARCH AGENDA & DESCRIPTION OF RESEARCH THEMES

The RCC identified interdisciplinary research themes that would improve on, the quality of and increase, research output at IUIU. These themes will enable IUIU to establish its identity at the national and international levels. The themes are expected to change as the IUIU’s department of research expands. The rationale behind such interdisciplinary themes is to postulate a platform that would nurture collaborative research as well as strengthen staff academic growth as together they confront multifaceted research tasks. The identified themes are listed below along with their broad meanings.

THE TEAM

Goal of Post Graduate Research


The universal goal of research is to gain new knowledge so as to better understand the world we live in and if possible change it for the better. Postgraduate research generally aims to train graduate students in the scientific and academic tradition, but above all to develop independent and critically minded researchers. Specifically, a doctoral program equips the doctoral candidates with top notch skills necessary to address problems in the candidates’ specialized fields, including both theoretical and practical training/experiential learning aiming at building human resource base capable of critical thinking and solving societal problems.
