7 Graduation Project - General Overview
Graduation Project is generally conducted over two consecutive semesters (Semester 7 and 8). In most cases, students will conduct their graduation projects in group and under the close guidance of a supervisor. The supervisor nominates co-supervisors (if needed). The department approves two committee members for each project A Pre-registration process is initiated at the end of 6th semester Project Proposal is completed in 7th semester. Project Implementation is completed in 8th semester.

8 Pre-registration Pre-registration involves project selection, project allocation and committee appointment Project proposals (topics) are proposed and allocated at the end of the 6th semester For each project a suitable supervisor must be found. The department approves/finalizes project topics and committee appointment
