Applied Physics 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.
Students should arrange brief individual ("1:1") meetings with their committee members to discuss research progress, funding, as well as about the climate within the group in general and between advisor and student in particular. Before the 1:1 meetings take place the advisor provides the other committee members an overview of the above items. Either student or advisor can opt for a full-committee meeting instead of 1:1 meetings.
Applied Physics is creating online forms to assist with this process; details are forthcoming.
