In Nigeria. Getting a good, hard working, progressive, powerful and God fearing Supervisor is the key, if not you would be in for an academic programme enmeshed with confusion and frustration which might culminate into abandonment or outright termination of student status.

Good luck!

Why would you say such of FUTO?
If you had an encounter with a particular department, you don't begin to smear the image of a great institution like FUTO. Sort yourself out as FUTO is one of the best schools in Nigeria.

Seriously, I didn't pick on you. The fact that I quoted your post was to point out something I found disturbing about Nigerian PhD holders.
what do you mean at that? 'You don't have to be loose with words.

Really There's no big deal about doing a PhD in Astronomy! I'm always amazed at the reaction(s) I get whenever I introduce myself as an astronomy student. Its just science, not different in anyway from any other science. Would be happy to chat with any other aspiring Physics student/or astronomy enthusiast...

You need minimum of 3.5 over 5.0 in MSc before you can apply for Phd.

With MBA getting Phd admission might be difficult. I also have MBA but looking forward to Msc management. My advice is that people should not bother about MBA instead go for MSc, since MSc management can also go for MBA but MBA cannot be seen as MSc in academic terms.
For UNILAG, you need minimum of 4.0 out of 5.00 to proceed to PhD. I am sure South Africa will still take 3.5 for PhD.

Good day friends.....

I am happy to see this kind of thread on FP. I have been a guest for 6 years....finally got a reason to join...to connect with intellectuals.

Nice to see you here brother......mind connecting for collaborations?
This is impressive! Are you also working on phthalocyanines, BODIPY or porphyrin for your research work? I'm currently in my second year and working on phthalocyanines and BODIPY using click reaction methods. I did my MSc research on sensing of pesticides using Zn, Co and Mn phthalocyanine derivatives.

I am also studying physics. I get similar reactions too. My area of interest is nanophotonics and I find astronomy fascinating. Yes it is science, one of the oldest actually. The origin can even be traced to Africa, several thousands of years back . we are the first this field and today, we hardly know anything about it. Kudos to Africans like you pursuing a career in Astronomy. What is your research about?

For you PhD, ensure your literature review, statement of research problem and methodology are very rich. Try and sharpen your focus so that you don't digress. In other words, narrow your focus to what you actually intend to research on. Read at least 50 papers/books in your particular area to broaden you mind and to find out what others have done and how they did it. You don't have to repeat a research unless you wish to disprove or further the work. Your research should actually contribute to the existing body of knowledge not duplicating any part of it.

I am a FUTOITE as well. The 'insiders' information you claim to provide is laced with falsehood. Like I opined earlier, FUTO is far beyond EEE & SEET; sort out your difficulties with EEE & desist from coming to a public fora as this to sour the great image of my alma mater. I've seen what obtains in other universities & I can tell you that I'm proud to a be FUTOITE.

My reason is I want to do PhD with my MBA and I know it is not a norm.

My work entails building architectures by utilising coordination chemistry and supramolecular interactions between metal acceptors and donor organic ligands.....which are synthesized from every available chemistry methods. It is called self - assembly reactions. I am delving into the use of metalloligands for heterometallic architectures.

Why didn't you do your PhD in Environment Toxicology with Professor Lawrence Ezemonye of UNIBEN? That's his core area of discipline. He taught me in my MSc.
prof Ezemonye is too busy,he was to av 6-8 lectures with us during my msc and he came only once.he has lot of responsiblities now.besides,for proximity sake,I couldn't consider uniben.thanks

I think Biodiesel will do, Plant and specifically Jatropha Cacaus plant, i have had personal and first hand experience on how this thing works,,, it is the future of Energy generation.

btw, is applying for a Phd programme that simple, i have always thought one requires at least three years teaching experience at uni or poly level .. does this varies from uni to uni, country to country or what? sombory enlighten me biko!!!
Yes... I actually used spent cooking oil during MSc.....Lot of work on Jathtopha already...I am thinking of Castor Oil now..Non edible oil..and the abundant of the plant all over Nigeria.

No...once you have BSc and MSc with PhD grade..you can proceed. Except your first degree is HND then you will require doing post graduate diploma and some working experience

My sister is aspiring to study Law. She is 18 but not yet in school. She has secured admission into Ife though. I am a tad worried about the career prospects in her discipline as I do not really have anyone who can mentor her around. I know Law is a prestigious discipline and that she is ardent on becoming a preeminent advocate in the future, I just do not want her to make the wrong decisions. She is into cosmetology now pending the time her school resumes for a new session in May. What is your advice on how to maximize her potentials as a law student? I would appreciate a well detailed recommendation, ma. Thanks.

Ife is an awesome school and she has so much time to become a great advocate! My advice would be to work hard at her LLB and while at it, she should do some volunteer work at a Law Firm or an NGO (if she is into human rights). Volunteering while studying will give her a feel of what her future career can potentially involve. Another thing I would say is that information is very important. When I decided to specialize in Law, I focused on international human rights law, which I love but When I decided to specialize in Law, I focused on international human rights law, which I love but I was also ignorant of the many other aspects. When I did my LLM, I met classmates who were doing cyber law, sports law, environmental law and I even have a classmate that is a lawyer for Givenchy (we are all jealous of her hahahahaha). There are so many aspects of Law that your sister specialize in (in the future) smiley

Thanks a lot for your time, sir. I am so grateful you squeezed out time to reply me.
I have actually found a prof whose work interests align with mine. I have gone through his journals cursorily but have not really done any proper analysis. I am verdant to the research world and the sample critiques I found online that were carried out by researchers betokens that journal critique is not something to be done perfunctorily. My direct question to you now, sir, is:
1. How can someone who does not know anything about research do a critique? I have seen the criteria that a good critique must fulfil while going through some literature but I just want an expert opinion from you.

Software Engineering is one nice area to delve into. I'm guessing you're thinking in the line of graduate school advisors abroad and not Nigeria, right? If it's for those abroad, researchgate.net is a good place to start. Try to register an account with them. There are loads of scholars there from all parts of the world, an you can narrow your interests to specific areas of specialisation. Give it a try first and let's see what u come up with. Google scholars is another way to go. There are loads of options.
