INDR 590 Seminar Guidelines

Coordinator: Barış Yıldız

Audience: All graduate students (MS or PhD) are required to complete INDR 590. YOK regulations state that MS students, and PhD students with an MS degree, have to get a satisfactory (‘S’) grade by the end of the fourth semester of their studies, while PhD students without an MS degree have to get an ‘S’ grade by the end of the sixth semester. Graduate students failing to satisfy the seminar requirement by these deadlines may be dismissed from the program. Accordingly, students should register for the course either the first semester after completing the requirements, or for the semester they expect to fulfill the requirements (but not later than their fourth/sixth semester). Full-time students are strongly encouraged to complete the requirements within their first year.

Content:

  • Students are required to attend a number of ORCIBS seminars and prepare brief summary reports. In these seminars, invited speakers talk about their current research. The seminars are announced via email, their time and location may vary. Occasionally other seminars outside of the ORCIBS series will also be eligible to contribute towards the course requirements.

Objectives:

  • To keep graduate students up-to-date about recent advances in scientific research in industrial engineering, operations research, and related areas, and inform them about research undertaken at our university in these fields. This is accomplished through seminars given by faculty members and invited speakers from world-class research institutions.

Grading & Attendance: INDR 590 is a non-credit course and students who complete the course receive an ‘S’ (Satisfactory) grade. The grading requirements are as follows:

  • To earn a passing grade, each student will have to submit brief summary reports for a number of ORCIBS (or other eligible) seminar talks that they attended. The seminars can be attended during any semester of MS or PhD studies.
    • Attendance will be taken at seminars. You can only submit reports to seminars that you attended
    • Each report should be between 250-400 words in length.
    • The reports are to be submitted within three days from the seminar date (i.e., a seminar report for a Friday seminar is due next Monday).
    • You can send the reports as PDF or Word documents to the course coordinator.
  • All students taking the course have to attend a total of seven seminars and submit one report for one of the seminars they have attended.
  • Students who register for the course after having already completed the requirements will automatically receive an ‘S’ grade. Students who register for the semester when they expect to complete the requirements will receive either an ‘S’ (if the requirements are fulfilled) or a ‘U’ grade.
  • Prior to the FALL 2017 semester INDR 590 was offered as a two-semester course, with separate requirements for the fall and spring semesters. For students who already completed one (SPRING or FALL) semester of INDR 590, the above requirements are modified as follows:
    • For MS students and PhD students with an MS, a previous ‘S’ grade from the FALL semester counts as two attended seminars. A previous ‘S’ grade from the SPRING semester counts as three attended seminars.
    • For PhD students without an MS degree a previous ‘S’ grade from the FALL semester counts as four attended seminars. A previous ‘S’ grade from the SPRING semester counts as six attended seminars.
