1 Graduate Studies in EMU Computer Engineering Department Dr. Ekrem Varoğlu(advisor to graduate students)
2 Overview What is graduate study? Entry requirements Fees and ScholarshipsProgram DurationCurrent research in CMPE department
3 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.)
4 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, etcproject managers were almost always people with M.S. or Ph.D. degreesResearch teams in the top industry consist primarily of people holding M.S. Or Ph.D.
5 Why EMU Computer Engineering? EMU has a strong academic and research background in Engineering and Applied SciencesOriginally established as an Engineering Institute in 1979Academic staff:Many scientific publicationsMany on-going engineering related reasearch projectsBroad range of reasearch areasStrong ties with industry
6 Admission Criteria M.S.: min undergraduate CGPA>= 2.20 Ph.D.:min undergraduate CGPA>= 2.75Republic of Turkey citizens must submit LES score for registration (min. 45 points)
