Graduate study is characterized by intellectual curiosity and the desire to contribute to human knowledge. It must be more than a mere continuation of undergraduate work and should be contemplated only by those students who have demonstrated in their earlier studies exceptional intellectual ability and the capacity for independent thought and investigation.

The School of Engineering and Applied Sciences offers courses leading to the Master of Science (MS) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees. Graduate degree programs can be completed in one and a half or two academic years for MS degrees, and in three or four academic years for PhDs.

The School offers MS Degree Programs in Computer Science, Computer Engineering and Petroleum Engineering.

Students entering the MS program normally are expected to have completed the requirements for the BS degree. Normally the BS degree is required for admission to the MS program.

The MS degree programs require 39 graduate credits, including 6 credits for the Master's thesis, and students must complete the major requirements with a G.P.A. of 75 or above.

The School offers PhD Degree Programs in Computer Science, Computer Engineering and Petroleum and Gas Engineering. 

 The Ph.D. programs are designed to prepare students for advanced study and research. Students entering the Ph.D. program normally are expected to have completed the requirements for the Master's degree and to have demonstrated creative ability. Normally the MS degree is required for admission to the Ph.D. program.

Each doctoral candidate must pass a final oral examination/defense of his/her dissertation and demonstrate wide knowledge of the major field as well as significance of the dissertation topic to his/her field of study.

 

Master of Science (MS) Degree Program in Computer Science

The MS degree program in Computer Science gives qualified students from various academic disciplines the opportunity for further education at the advanced level in Computer Science. In addition to meeting the minimum university requirements for graduate study, applicants must have adequate undergraduate preparation in computer science. Students entering the program without the appropriate background will be expected to take certain undergraduate courses as prerequisites.

Master of Science (MS) Degree Program in Mathematics

 

The main objective of the Master’s Degree Program is to train highly qualified specialists and researchers in pure and applied mathematics.

Modern mathematics is not only the language of science and technology but it also contains enormous varieties of sub-branches and fascinating areas of research. Accordingly, research activities are conducted in a broad range of areas, from the most theoretical branches to the most computational and applied ones.

The Master’s Degree Program requires 39 graduate credits, including 6 credits for the research-oriented thesis.

The course program is determined by the Department of Mathematics according to the field of specialization.

 

PhD Degree Programs

The School offers PhD Degree Programs in Computer Science, Computer Engineering and Petroleum and Gas Engineering. 

The Ph.D. programs are designed to prepare students for advanced study and research.

Students entering the Ph.D. program normally are expected to have completed the requirements for the Master's degree and to have demonstrated creative ability. Normally the MS degree is required for admission to the Ph.D. program.

A combination MS/PhD may be applied in some cases, as approved by the Committee of Graduate Studies.

Upon satisfactory completion of the coursework and the qualifying examination, the student and his/her supervisor select a dissertation topic. Candidates shall demonstrate their abilities for independent study in their dissertations by performing original research.

Each doctoral candidate must pass a final oral examination/defense of his/her dissertation and demonstrate wide knowledge of the major field as well as the significance of the dissertation topic to the field of study.
