PROGRAMS OF STUDYThe Faculty of Engineering offers two year graduate programs leading to the Master of Science Degree in Engineering in the following departments:
StatusDegreeYearsEngineering FacultyOfferedMS2Departement of Computer EngineeringOfferedMS2Departement of Electrical EngineeringOfferedMS2Departement of Civil EngineeringOfferedMS2Departement of Mechanical EngineeringOfferedMS2Departement of Chemical Engineering
In addition, the Faculty of Engineering offers MS degrees in the following graduate programs: Engineering Management, and Environmental Engineering.
The sequence of study in all these programs proceeds from an education in science fundamentals toward training designed to give the student mastery of the principles and arts central to Engineering Science. The MS degree provide a deeper and more focused education aiming at preparing engineers with more specialized skills and stronger research emphasis compared to the BS degree education. The final decision on acceptance to the Masters Degree program resides with the Admissions Committee of the Faculty.
GRADUATE PROGRAMThe Faculty of Engineering offers a two-year graduate program leading to the Masters of Engineering degree. To earn the degree, a student must successfully complete the required course work as approved by the Departments of the Faculty of Engineering.
1. ADMISSION REQUIREMENTSApplicants must hold a BS degree in engineering from a recognized institution of higher learning with an undergraduate average of at least 80 or its equivalent in the major courses of the field of study. The candidates folder should contain the following documents:a-an official application to join the graduate program,b-official transcripts from the universities attended during the last three years,c-3 letters of recommendation,d-a personal statement.
Acceptance to the graduate program of Engineering is granted upon recommendation of the Faculty Graduate Committee after reviewing the application.
The Faculty Graduate Committee may also admit students on probationary status to the graduate program after evaluation of the student file. Please refer to the Academic Regulations section of the Graduate Studies Manual.
2. ACADEMIC RULES AND REGULATIONSThe following is a statement of the policy on academic progress in the Faculty of Engineering.Graduate students are evaluated at the end of each semester.Evaluation of academic progress is based on the average of the major graduate courses taken during the evaluation period. All required courses are counted as major courses.
Faculty of Engineering 7
A. TIME LIMITATIONSWith careful planning, full-time students should be able to complete the MS program in two years. Part-time students can complete the MS degree in up to five years.Course credits earned in the program of graduate study or accepted by transfer are valid for a maximum of six years unless the Graduate Committee of the Faculty grants an extension. Students should petition in writing to the Graduate Committee for such exceptions.
B. TRANSFER CREDITSA grade of 80 or better is required for transfer courses to be accepted. These courses must not have been credited toward any other degree at UOB. Transfer credits are granted for courses which are equivalent to a course offered at UOB. Please refer to the Academic Regulations section of the Graduate Studies Manual.
C. PASSING-GRADEThe passing grade for all courses is 70.
D. FULL-TIME STATUSThe semester load for full-time students is no less than 9 hours. Full-time students may accept employment only with the approval of the Department. Students who are employed outside the University for more than 20 hours per week are not normally eligible for full-time status at the Faculty of Engineering.
E. EvALUATION OF ACADEMIC PERFORMANCEPlease refer to the Academic Regulations section of the Graduate Studies Manual.
F. APPEALA graduate student may petition the Dean concerning the application of any academic regulation. Petitions should be made only when a dispute cannot be resolved at the Departmental level.
3-LABORATORY CHARGESA. SUPPLIESEach student taking laboratory subjects must furnish, at his/her expense, the necessary notebooks, blank forms, lab coat, and similar supplies. For regular students taking prescribed laboratory work, no charge is made for normal amounts of expendable material used in connection with laboratory subject. Expendable materials are those that are necessarily consumed or rendered unfit for further use in the normal conduct of a laboratory test. If an excessive amount of expendable material is required because of carelessness on the part of the student, the cost of the additional material will be charged to the student or group responsible.
B. DAMAGESStudents will be charged for damage to instruments caused by lack of care. The amount of the charge will be the actual cost of repair, and if the damage results in total loss of the apparatus, adjustment will be made in light of the condition of the instruments. Where there is danger of costly damage, an instructor will be asked to check the set up. When a group does laboratory work, charges for breakage will be divided among the members of the group concerned. The amount of the charge will be stated at the time or as soon as it can be determined.
