On 10 October 2014, one RISDEV (ISDEV Postgraduate by Research) student and two MISDEV'13 (ISDEV Postgraduate Mixed-Mode) students presented their PhD research proposal and Master Dissertations proposal respectively. There were close to 50 ISDEV members consisting of ISDEV lecturers and postgraduate students at the Conference Room of C06, School of Social Sciences.

The three candidates were RISDEV student, Mohd. Shahmir Alias and the two MISDEV'13 students, Fathin Amalina Yaacob and Siti Sakinah Syed Hamzah.

Passionate about his research, Mohd Shamir stressing a point.

The first presenter was Mohd.Shahmir Alias who defended his research proposal on "Bebas Nilai Dalam Penyelidikan: Kajian Dari Perspektif Aksiologi Penyelidikan Berteraskan Islam". The candidate is supervised by Dr. Mohd Shukri Hanapi while his research proposal was commented by Dr. Fadzila Azni Ahmad.

The second session continued with MISDEV’13 presentation. It started with Siti Sakinah Syed Hamzah who presented on "Konsep Pelancongan Islam Berdasarkan Prinsip Pembangunan Berteraskan Islam". She is supervised by Dr. Fadzila Azni Hamat while Dr. Wan Norhaniza Wan Hasan acted as her co-supervisor.

A fairly nerve-racking experience for Siti Sakinah.

The last person of the day to present was Fathin Amalina Yaacob. She presented on "Isu-isu Zakat Dalam Media Arus Perdana". She is supervised by Dr. Zahri Hamat while her co-supervisor is Dr. Zakaria Bahari. Both of these MISDEV'13 students each presented Chapters 1 to 3 of their dissertations.

A serene smile on the exterior successfully covers Fathin's nervous and tense interior.

All of the candidates tried their best to explain the details of the contents of their research proposal. A number of questions were directed to them immediately following their presentations. The questions fielded included those by ISDEV lecturers as well as fellow postgraduate students, both RISDEV and MISDEV'13 and MISDEV'14.

After a detailed evaluation and comments given by ISDEV lecturers, all of them finally received the good news that they could proceed to the next stage of their PhD thesis and dissertations with modifications to be carried out based on the feedback given by the evaluators.

The ever-expanding ISDEV fraternity at C06.
They were elated with joy upon hearing that they have been given the endorsement to proceed their thesis and dissertations proper. They expressed their gratitude to Allah SWT and to their respective supervisors and co-supervisors for the guidance in helping them in writing their thesis as well as dissertations.

Heartiest Congratulations to the three candidates!
