Programme Structure

Candidates enrolled for a graduate programme by research pursue an independent but supervised research in an approved topic based on which a thesis must be submitted for examination.

Candidates are also required to attend a number of graduate level courses and pass the examinations. Candidates are required to attend classes and pass the examinations to earn at least 9 Academic Units (for e.g. 3 3-AU courses) in M.Eng. study and 18 Academic Units (for e.g. 6 3-AU courses) in Ph.D. study. Candidates have to undergo a Qualifying Examination/Confirmation Exercise within a period stipulated by the school.

Upon the completion of the research, the candidate is required to submit a thesis on his/her research for examination. For the degree of Doctor of Philosophy, there is also an oral examination on the subject matter on his/her thesis and other related subjects.
