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. 33-AU courses) in MEng study and 18 Academic Units (for e.g. 63-AU courses) in PhD study.
