Graduation

MS Degrees
The culminating experience for the master students is a written thesis. They must complete the proposal after the first year entering the school. Although students are not required to take written qualification exams, there is a universal requirement at NTU that a final oral defense should be held for master's theses before a panel of three to five experts, including the advisor.
 
PhD Degrees
PhD students should select their dissertation instructors before registration. In general, students may apply for a proposal oral exam once they complete the required courses. Students may only take the exam twice. They must complete the proposal oral exam within three years after entering the school. When PhD candidates bring up the application of the dissertation exam the first time, they must have completed at least 3 publishable manuscripts and at least one of them has been accepted by qualified international journals. Although students are not required to take written qualification exams, there is a universal requirement at NTU that a final oral defense should be held for dissertation before a panel of five to eight experts, including the advisor.
