For two days from 28 to 29 May 2015, I visited Padang. On 28 May morning, I attended a PhD examination of Yelmida Aziz, my PhD student at Universitas Andalas (UNAND). The chairman of the examination was Prof. Edison Munaf. The examination went well and the candidate respond and answers to the questions raised by the examiners. Yelmida Aziz finally passed her open PhD exam and awarded the PhD degree with very satisfactory judicium. Yelmida Aziz is supervised by Prof. Dr. Novezar Jamarun, Prof. Dr. Syukri Arief and Prof. Dr. Hadi Nur. She is my 17th PhD student who graduated under my guidance.
