The research methods course introduces student to principal and modern concepts of research. This course helps the student to build an analytical and systematic link between theory and practice. Students will be able to develop skills in carrying out literature search using electronic databases, catalogues and print media using proper referencing methods, conduct preliminary literature review, familiarize in experimental methods as well as practice analyzing and interpreting data. Students are expected to recognise the significance of technological innovations, professional and ethical responsibilities in research. Students will be able to analyze and present research results in writing and in oral presentations as well as understanding scope and limits of qualitative and qualitative research methodologies.
