Faculty of Agriculture Undergraduate Research Symposium (FAuRS) 2014


The Faculty of Agriculture Undergraduate Research Symposium (FAuRS - 2014)) is scheduled to be held on 23rd December 2014. The FAuRS, a concerted effort to provide a common platform for the graduands from all Departments of Study of the Faculty to present the results of their final year research projects, will be inaugurated this year as an annual event in the Faculty calendar. This symposium, while providing an opportunity for the graduands of the Faulty to present and share the research findings with a broad group of stakeholders, especially from the industry, will also set the stage for the prospective employers to identify competent and budding graduates that would fit in well to the competitive world of challenges and opportunities. In the past, the student research symposia were held with the same objective separately at the respective Departments of Study. However, from this year onwards, the sessions will be consolidated as one event of the Faculty for all the students representing different disciplines of Agriculture and majoring modules at all Departments of Study in the Faculty. As in the 68 years long history of the Faculty of Agriculture, the staging of this event is also generously supported by various organizations that always have extended the goodwill towards the activities conducted by the Faculty.
