EEI Ends Orientation Exercise For New Intakes

By LetomNnen
The Emerald Energy Institute (EEI), has ended its orientation exercise for newly admitted graduate students for the 2019/2020 academic session. The exercise held on Monday, January 27, 2020 at the EEI Auditorium located inside the Institute of Petroleum Studies Park. 
Briefing the new students on the operational framework of the Institute, the Acting Director, DrChijiokeNwaozuzu, urged them to take the programme seriously to graduate within their residency period. He assured them that the Institute and its operational partner were fully committed to ensuring that the students acquired hands-on skills at the completion of their prescribed course of study.  “The Institute would play its own part to ensure that you complete your prescribed programme in time. It is left for you to comply with the rules and regulations and be serious with your studies to graduate  within the stipulated timeframe,” the Acting Director told the new students. 
Making a presentation on Graduate School Processes, Procedures and Thesis/Dissertation Template, Associate Dean of the School of Graduate Studies, Professor Samuel Arokoyu, advised the students to strictly adhere to the approved format by the School of Graduate Studies to avoid delays in their programme. He also advised them to abide by the University's ethical and academic standards while writing their Thesis/Dissertation to avoid the snare of plagiarism that had scuttled the careers of some of their erstwhile colleagues. 
“I implore you to make up your minds to always do the right thing at all times to minimise the errors and untenable excuses students give when they infringe upon the rules. If you do not do the right things, then you would not be allowed to graduate,” Professor Arokoyu warned the students. He also charged them to work closely with their Supervisors and report any impediment they may encounter in the course of the programme for immediate remedial action. 
Speaking on Rooting Out Plagiarism From Postgraduate Education: Issues, Problems and the Way Out at the event, which featured an  interactive session, the Acting Director of Intellectual Property and Technology Transfer Office (IPTTO), Dr Roland Uhunmwangho, identified ethics and honesty as two most important components of authentic academic activities. He urged the students to be ethical and honest in their research work. 
DrUhunmwangho also stressed the need for researchers to reference such materials in line with approved academic standards set out by the relevant organs of the University. He listed intentional and non-intentional appropriation as types of plagiarism that could land researchers in trouble. The Acting Director further warned the students against resubmitting their previously graded works to avoid opening themselves up to accusations of plagiarism and destroying their academic reputation in the process.
