Synopsis
SE6770 is a Faculty requirement since 2004. The module is intended to encourage scholarly interactions  among the graduate research students. Under a lecturer’s guidance, the students  have engaged with each other during the past months, and now share their thoughts  with the wider community. They hope to attract comments and suggestions for the  further development of their thesis projects. This year’s SE6770 seminar is combined with the department’s annual graduate seminar where all graduate research students at the department share the progress of their thesis.
