MCS (Master of Computer Science)
Students enrolled in the first semester of their study programme are given pre-selected courses; all other students may select their own courses subject to their scheme of studies and the limitations prescribed in the rules below.
The credit hour limits are as below:
i. For the first and second semesters a maximum of 18 credit hours are allowed
ii. For the third semester a maximum of 21 credit hours are allowed
iii. For the fourth and any extra subsequent semesters a maximum of 21 credit hours are allowed; however, if the degree programme would be completed in that semester, a maximum of 27 credit hours are allowed.
Students taking less than the course load prescribed by their scheme of studies will require extra semesters to complete the curriculum; in such cases they will also have to bear the additional cost.
During a study program, students may attempt to improve a "D" grade course only once.
Rules for Final Projects:
Students are required to complete a Final Project within two consecutive semesters (carrying a workload of 3 credit hours per semester).
Final Project may only be taken by the third semester regular students.
In order to enroll for a Final Project, students must have:
i. achieved a CGPA of 1.75 or higher
ii. earned 30 or more credit hours.
In order to select your courses, follow the steps below:
1. From within the LMS, click the Student Services button
2. Click on the Course Selection link
3. Give preference to "F" grade course(s) and the improvement of "D" grades where possible
4. Click the check boxes to select courses
5. Save the selection
6. You may make changes in course selection any number of times before the last date to add, drop or replace course(s).
(Note: Final Project spans two consecutive semesters however, it is selected only once)
(Note: You may want to consult your scheme of studies under the Student Services section in your LMS account, in case of any confusion).
