Guidelines for earning a Master’s Degree

  • To be granted a master’s degree, you must earn 30 or more credits, receive the required research guidance, and pass a master’s thesis review.
  • Among the 30 credits required for the degree, 12 credits must be earned from seminar courses. Each academic year, you must take the seminar courses provided by your supervisor. If more than 12 credits of seminar courses are taken, credits in excess of 12 are not counted toward the number of credits required for the degree.
  • Please consult with your supervisor regarding what other courses should be taken to fulfill the credit requirement toward your degree.
  • Students must have earned credits from Special Laboratory A and B in Computer Science and Engineering at the eligible year.
