Message from Department Chair
While the duration of this program is dependent on the nature of the research project and the capabilities of the candidate, the minimum is two years study beyond the M.Eng. degree. Within twelve months of starting a Ph.D., the candidate is required to present his/her proposed research program for review by a faculty committee in a Preliminary Ph.D. Oral Examination. A defence of the Ph.D. thesis concludes the doctoral research.
We offer Master's and Doctoral programs and also allow "special student status" for those who are enrolled in graduate level courses without being enrolled in a degree program.
