The upcoming induction is scheduled for Friday 30 August 2019 from 2pm to 3pm in H1B13.

This is a platform for postgraduates to get together and mingle among themselves. It aims to connect postgraduates with one another in a relaxing and comfortable environment. Postgraduates may take this opportunity to temporarily get away from their work and catch-up with fellow postgraduates before returning to their routine with a fresh mind.
