The university is happy to announce that the May 2014 Doctoral symposium held at the Rapperswil symposium was a great success. Over 25 student and faculty were present for the week. Presentations were made by Dr. Henderson, Dr. York, Dr. Madarasz, Dr. Qudrat Ullah as well as Dr. Koegl. The symposium also held several doctoral defenses along with a graduation ceremony on the last day. An opening dinner and closing dinner in the Castle were also enjoyed by all. We look forward to seeing everyone present for the next symposium scheduled for November 2014.
