Curriculum Overview (all Graduate-level Programs)
As detailed below, our graduate programs have two main components: the completion of coursework, and the submission of either a Master’s Thesis or Doctoral Dissertation.
Coursework allows our students to deepen their knowledge and to specialize within their field of research. We therefore encourage our graduate students to take courses that are closely related to their thesis or dissertation topic. There are four major specializations covering materials, energy, systems, and information engineering. Some examples of graduate course topics are Advanced Computational Materials Science, Wind Power Technology, Scripting Languages and Virtual Machines, MEMS Technology and Materials, and Remote Sensing.
Every graduate student is associated with a research laboratory, usually run by their direct supervisor, in which they conduct their research work.
All students also take advanced Scientific English courses to strengthen their ability to communicate their research results to the global academic community.
Graduation Requirements (Master’s Program)
The master’s course is a two-year program.
To obtain the degree of Master of Engineering from KUAS students are required to be enrolled at KUAS for a two-year period (four full semesters of instruction), obtain 34 credits or more from coursework, prepare a master's thesis (which must be approved by their supervisor), and pass a final examination.
Graduation Requirements (Doctoral Program)
The doctoral course is a three-year program.
To obtain the degree of Doctor of Engineering from KUAS students are required to be enrolled at KUAS for a three-year period (six full semesters of instruction), obtain 24 credits or more from coursework, prepare a doctoral dissertation (which must be approved by their supervisor), and pass a final examination.
