Scientific Preparation

Scientific Preparation Program

A Scientific Preparation Program comprising a maximum of 6 courses is applied on the basis of the state of the students accepted to the program on the basis of their backgrounds in other fields. The non-Computer Engineering/Sciences students who will be enrolled in the program will first be required to complete scientific preparation courses. The cases of the students who previously took similar courses will be reviewed by the Master’s Program Committee of the department. As a rule, the scientific preparation program should be completed in 1 academic year. The student should get a grade of at least DD on each course offered in the Scientific Preparation Program, and should complete the program with a minimum GPA of 2.00 over 4.00. The time spent for the Scientific Preparation Program is not taken into account with reference to the time limitations for the master's program.
