Applied Math PhD Committee Meetings

The faculty expect PhD students to meet with their research committees at least annually following the qualifying exam.  These meetings are for the student's benefit in order to connect with and receive better advising from their committee members.

The goal of the meeting is to review progress made to date, in a constructive and productive environment.

  • The student gives a presentation on their current research status

  • The advisor and student are each separately asked to leave the room for at least a brief conversation amongst the others

  • The meeting is to be scheduled for 2 hours, although 1 hour may be a more typical length in practice.  The absence of one committee member is okay if all can’t be scheduled together.
