Course info

Summary

The Division of Computer Science and Engineering offers a part-time and full-time articulated M.Phil.-Ph.D. program in Computer Science and Engineering. This programme consists of two research oriented streams: M.Phil. and Ph.D. All full-time research students will receive Studentships during their normative study period.

The Programme is research-oriented. For the M.Phil. stream, the normative period of full-time study is 2 years. For the Ph.D. stream, the normative period for full-time study is 3 years for students with a research master's degree and 4 years for students without a research master's degree. All students in the Ph.D. stream will be admitted initially with a 'pre-candidacy' status. Upon satisfying the division's candidacy requirements (coursework requirement, candidacy examination, and thesis proposal and oral defence), a student will be allowed to progress to the 'post-candidacy' status.
