Sidebar    Degree Requirement

To graduate, a student needs to accumulate a total of no less than 40 MCs and obtain a minimum Cumulative Average Point (CAP) of 3.00 (equivalent to an average of Grade B-) for the best modules equivalent of 40 MCs, inclusive of the two core modules. Of the 40 MCs, at least 30 MCs must be from the approved list of core and elective graduate level modules, the remaining credits may be from other levels in the same or other disciplines subject to the approval of the Department.

The following modules are offered for the MSc (Materials Science and Engineering):
