Graduate Programmes (by Research)


Programme Structure

Candidates pursue an independent but supervised research in an approved field of advanced study based on which a thesis must be submitted. Candidates are also required to attend classes and pass the examinations to earn at least 9 AU (for e.g. 3 3-AU courses) in MEng study and 18 AU (for e.g. 6 3-AU courses) in PhD study. They will have to undergo a Qualifying Examination as well as a Confirmation Exercise.

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.
