Kantipur City College organized a one day webinar on Dissertation Writing. The webinar was for Master students who are writing their thesis and didn’t know what to expect or how to manage the project towards completion.

From Department of MCA:
These all are the supporting documents/materials for the students who are willing to accomplish their dissertation. The students should be self directed:
“Writing a dissertation is a lot like writing a book. It is, by definition, a self-directed process. There are usually no weekly deadlines from supervisors , no regular discussions with classmates, no reading assignments, no one telling you what to do; you are on your own, writing something longer than you’ve ever written. This independence can make the process seem very intimidating. If you focus on all the procedures given by the Professors on this webinar and start your tasks on your own; it seems becomes very easy to accomplish the dissertation”
