Candidates reading for a higher degree by research pursue independent but supervised research on an approved topic based on which a thesis must be submitted for examination. Candidates are also required to do at least three courses (M.Eng.) and six courses (Ph.D.) to fulfill the coursework requirements.
In addition to passing the Qualifying Examination on subject matter related to coursework and thesis proposal and being examined on the thesis, a candidate for the degree of PhD must also pass an oral examination to defend the thesis submitted. For non-PhD candidates, the oral examination may be prescribed at the discretion of the Board of Examinations.
Details of these programmes can be found in the six engineering schools under NTU College of Engineering (CoE) below.
Dual and Joint PhD degree programmes
As part of our talent and intellectual development mission, NTU has partnered with many world-renowned universities to offer dual and joint PhD degree programmes in key research focus areas. All this is done to bring about greater opportunities for our students to interact with world-class faculty and researchers, to experience and undertake exciting and challenging research collaborations. These valuable experiences will certainly stretch our students’ learning abilities and in term help to mould their character and self-belief.
