Graduate Studies in EMU Computer Engineering Department Dr. Ekrem Varoğlu ( advisor to graduate students)
Overview What is graduate study? Entry requirements Fees and Scholarships Program Duration Current research in CMPE department
What is Graduate Studies? Graduate Study involves course work and thesis work towards a higher degree such as; Master of Science (M.S.) Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.)
Why go to Graduate School? An undergraduate degree prepares you for many good jobs: applications programmers, systems analysts, design engineers etc. However many jobs that require advanced degrees: university professor, head of an industrial research division, etc project managers were almost always people with M.S. or Ph.D. degrees Research teams in the top industry consist primarily of people holding M.S. Or Ph.D.
Why EMU Computer Engineering? EMU has a strong academic and research background in Engineering and Applied Sciences Originally established as an Engineering Institute in 1979 Academic staff: Many scientific publications Many on-going engineering related reasearch projects Broad range of reasearch areas Strong ties with industry
Admission Criteria M.S.: min undergraduate CGPA>= 2.20 Ph.D.:min undergraduate CGPA>= 2.75 Republic of Turkey citizens must submit LES score for registration (min. 45 points)
