4.2.3.2    Degree Requirements

The graduation requirements include obtaining a minimum Cumulative Average Point (CAP) of 3.00 (equivalent to an average of Grade B-) for the best 40 modular credits (MCs), inclusive of core modules, where required. Of the 40 MCs, at least 30 MCs must be from Electrical Engineering (EE) graduate modules or equivalent modules as identified by the Department. The remaining credits may be from other levels in the same or other disciplines as approved by the Department.

Students who opt to read MSc (Electrical Engineering) with a specialisation will be required to fulfil the following requirements:

Specialisation in Automation and Control Engineering

Compulsory Modules

EE5101 Linear Systems
EE5103 Computer Control Systems

Elective Modules for Specialisation (at least 3 modules)

* Conditions apply to MSc students registered from August 2011 onwards. A maximum two (2) of the above listed CS modules can be taken and be counted towards fulfilling the elective requirements of the specialisation in Computer Engineering. In the event that a student opts out from this specialisation, any CS modules that had been taken from this list would no longer be considered as equivalent EE graduate modules and if necessary, the student would then have to take additional modules to meet the requirements of the MSc(EE) degree, or MSc(EE) with specialisation in areas other than Computer Engineering.
