The last few weeks of October and November were akin to a nightmare for all 36 students of MISDEV'13 (ISDEV Mixed-Mode Master students) because all of them were scheduled to present their final dissertations. The presentation took place at C05, C06 and C23 of the Social Sciences Conference Room. The students were divided into six groups with each of the group consisting of six students.
The groups presented their dissertations on 15, 30 and 31 October which continued on 7,12 and 13 November 2014. Each student was given 15 minutes to present in front of their supervisors as well as other ISDEV lecturers who all acted as evaluators.

The lecturers gave their comments and suggestions on how the students could improve their dissertations proper before submitting to the lecturers. A Question and Answer Session was also opened to the other students for a clearer understanding of the presentations.
