A thesis committee supervises the progress of a PhD thesis. It helps the PhD candidates to develop the best possible PhD thesis within the intended period of time by regular meetings with experienced scientists. The committee may also assist in the selection of generic skills courses in the doctoral programmes offered by OLTECH.
The guidelines of a PhD thesis committee are helpful to prepare and invite participants to a first thesis committee meeting.
Some information regarding the preparation of a thesis committee meeting and an example of minutes of PhD thesis committee will give you more advice. After each thesis committee meeting a module certificate has to be filled in and the minutes should be send to the coordinator of your PhD programme or to the Graduate School OLTECH.
