Such competencies include knowing how to network with members of the scientific community, how to present research in public settings, and how to publish a paper in a peer-reviewed journal. Therefore, by the end of the second year of the program, students are expected to report on their progress in both research and professional development, including participation in conferences, workshops, and other similar activities. During the third year of the Ph.D. program, students are expected to submit at least one scholarly article for publication prior to presenting their dissertation at the Pre-Defence.
