Some guidelines on how to do a PhD and yet enjoying it!
Doing a PhD is a very challenging process, yet it is very wise investment; it adds much value to one's career and raise their profile. It also improves self-realization. This presentation explains the PhD journey and how to overcome its challenges such as identifying the research topic, research methodology, data collection, data analysis and more important how to deal with your supervisory team. It an abstract of real-life experience.

يقولون دائماً «عامل الناس كما تحب أن يعاملوك»، لكن يبدو أن هذه المقولة لم تعد فعالة، فالنظريات الحديثة والتجارب العملية تثبت أن هناك وجهة نظر أخرى، مفادها أن كل إنسان هو كيان مستقل، وله اهتمامات مختلفة، وشخصية وأسلوب فريدان من نوعهما، وبالتالي يجب ألا نجع
