Faculty of Graduate Stories

Graduate students should consider the following:

Advisor-Student Relationship

Your advisor is responsible for more tasks than you imagine. Your advisor's time is extremely valuable. Any change in your program of study, research topic, course schedule, and research lab schedule should be discussed and approved by your advisor.

Performing Research

Research takes time, so you have to prepare yourself to spend long hours designing and performing experiments, analyzing your data and writing your thesis. Read the literature to obtain background for your research topic. Perform the research. The advisor will not tell you every step to make. The advisor will only direct the general research direction. If you encounter a problem in your research try to figure it out by yourself. Try approaching the problem from different directions. If you cannot find success, schedule a meeting with your advisor, be sure to have specific questions prepared.

What should I do in order to graduate?

Each master student will need to accomplish the following before graduating. Complete 34 credit hours for MSc students. Write and defend a thesis in accordance with department and faculty of graduate studies regulations (Thesis Track). Pass the comprehensive exam (Comprehensive Exam Track).
