Part-Time Non-Examination BTech/MSc Course ~ What, Who, Why, When, Where ~ • WHAT ARE THESE PROGRAMMES ALL ABOUT? The Part-Time Non-Examination BTech / MSc programmes are the same as our graduate programmes that enroll part-time students pursuing their degrees. However, participants who enroll for the non-examination version need not sit for the exams. Non-examination students will alternatively be awarded with Certificates of Attendance instead of Degrees. Classes are usually conducted in the evenings from 6pm – 9pm on Mondays to Fridays. • WHO IS IT FOR? The courses are targeted at working engineers who want to attend specific modules from the BTech / MSc programmes as a refresher’s course and / or to learn more about certain areas within their profession to enhance their knowledge. • WHY DO WE OFFER THESE PROGRAMMES? These courses are offered to provide individuals with an option to upgrade / equip themselves with specific knowledge without having to go through the entire BTech / MSc programme. • WHEN ARE THE COURSES AVAILABLE? Lectures are attended by both examination and non-examination students simultaneously. Therefore the courses are also offered according the University’s academic term. Semester I commences approximately in the last week of July while Semester II commences approximately in the first week of January. • WHERE WILL THE CLASSES BE HELD? Classes are held within the University’s premise in the Faculty of Engineering.
