Q.E Guideline

Department of Materials Science Engineering

When March/September
Times per Year Two times/year
Criteria Oral Examination
Subjects (required, elective)
  • The committee consists of three professors including the student's academic advisor, who is the committee chair, and two other decided by the graduate school committee of our department/school. The academic advisor can suggest committee candidates. At least two of three committee professors should be the core members from the materials science and engineering (MSE) department.
  • The students must turn in the examination materials to all committee professors at least 1 week prior to the examination date. Otherwise the student will be considered to have failed in the examination.
  • The presentation should be focused on mainly the student's research background and the subsequent questions from the committed should be answered properly. The committee will make a decision right after discussion in the examination.
Required Time Presentation and Oral Examination : 60min.
Passing Standard Knowledge and understanding of major subjects for the Ph.D. research(60 points), presentation ability and attitude (10 points) and presentation contents (30 points)
Measures on Unsuccessful Students The student must earn at least 60 points from each committee professor to pass the examination. The student may take one more examination if he/she fails in the first examination.
Standard for Application Students must pass the Ph.D. Q.E. within 6th semester after enrolling in the Ph.D./M.S-Ph.D. course.
Note The guidelines are effective from Spring 2014, and apply to all Ph.D. and M.S.-Ph.D. students. For the 2013 fall and winter trimester, the existing QE rule for the school of MAME will be applied. i.e. there will be one special QE for the winter 2013 trimester. The written extermination will be allowed tentatively only for the students who already took the 1st written extermination, but they may also opt for the oral examination instead.
