PROGRAM STRUCTURE

The duration of the M.Sc. program in Computer Science is approximately two years. The program is divided into 4 semesters. Semester 1 consists of 3 foundation course units (non-credit) and 5 course units. Semester 2 consists of 9 course units. Semester 3 consists of optional course units. The total number of credits for these three semesters is 30 (one credit is equivalent to 15 hours of lectures or 45 hours of practical). During semester 4, candidates who are eligible to do the thesis engage in at least 450 hours of independent research and submits a thesis. Lectures and practical sessions are conducted on Saturdays (between 8.00 am to 5.30 pm) and Sundays (between 8.00 am to 12.15 pm). In addition, candidates must be able to spend a considerable amount of time for self-studies, homework and assignments, etc., throughout the program. This program is primarily an M.Sc. program. All candidates are recruited as M.Sc. candidates and they are required to follow the course units offered in the first, second and third semesters. At the end of the third semester, those candidates who obtain a GPA not less than 2.7 and a ‘C’ or higher grade for each foundation course unit are eligible to do the M.Sc. thesis.
