Entry Requirements

  • Bachelor’s degree of Computing or in the area of science and technology or related to Computing with minimum CGPA of 3.00 or equivalent as acceptable by the Senate.

  • Bachelor's degree of Computing or in the area of science and technology or related to Computing with CGPA below 3.00 but above 2.50 can be accepted subject to rigorous internal assessment process.

  • Bachelor’s degree of Computing or in the area of science and technology or related to Computing with a minimum CGPA less than 2.50 with a minimum of 5 years working experience in a relevant field

  • For candidates without Computing degree, pre-requisite modules in Computing will be offered to adequately prepare them.


Students of the MPhil programme may convert their MPhil into a PhD candidate if they satisfy all the criteria below:
(a) Display excellent progress in their research.
(b) Able to demonstrate the potential of their project to be expended to PhD level.
(c) Pass a rigorous assessment.

Successful conversion means that the student will no longer be an MPhil candidate but will instead become a PhD candidate with their candidature start date backdated to their original MPhil registration date. Hence, it allows the student to gain a PhD award within a shorter timeframe, without the need to complete a Masters programme.


Programme Structure / Process Flow

This programme is conducted by research and is assessed via oral presentations and reports at various junctures, including a Proposal Defence, regular half-yearly progress monitoring at research colloquiums, Work Completion Defence, Thesis Examination and Viva Voce. Students would need to take one taught module on Research Methodology to gain the pre-requisite knowledge to effectively carry out their research. Regular discussions with the supervisors would be expected to ensure the direction of research as well as the quality and significance of the findings.
