Academic supervision is a crucial part of doing a master- or a PhD-degree. But how should the formal and informal relationships be between a supervisor and the candidate? How can a supervisor evolve from being just an ok supervisor to an excellent one? What should you as a student be prepared for? And what can you do if something goes wrong?

Meld meg på

This seminar focuses on both sides of the academic supervision and the responsibilities of both students and supervisors. Come and hear representatives from NTNU both in the form of professors who have supervised a great deal of students, and candidates who have experienced different forms of supervision. In addition, we will hear from both Tekna NTNU on what you can do when the supervisor-candidate relationship needs improvement, and who you can contact for help.

Invited speakers will be announced when ready. There will be time for discussion.

Registration and food will be served from 16:30 til 17:00

This event is made in cooperation with Tekna forskerne, Tekna NTNU, Tekna Student NTNU Trondheim, Tekna young Trondheim and Teknas fagråd NTNU Trondheim.
