HEA LANGUAGE TEST FOR FIRST ENGINEERING STUDENTS

A = 70+
B = 62-69
C = 55-61
D = 40-54
IR

Students who pass the Language Test will be graded A, B, C, D and will automatically fulfill the BE Language requirement.  In addition, students who are graded C or higher and whose attendance has been satisfactory will be eligible to receive certification from the Language Centre.  The Certificate will provide information about the course and indicate the specific grade achieved by the candidate.



ENMRF0001 M.E. DEGREE EXAMINATION

  1. Candidates for the Degree of M.E. must be accepted by the Faculty of the College as prospective candidates at least six months before entering for the Examination.  They are required to give notice to the Dean of the Faculty before 15th January of the year in which they intend to present themselves for examination with particulars of the branch of study selected, title of proposed dissertation, and details of their professional experience.
  2. They must pass a special examination in:
     The special branch of Engineering selected by the Candidate.
     The examination may be held in Summer and the thesis submitted in Autumn.
     Exemption from the examination may be granted by the Faculty to a Candidate who has obtained First Class Honours in the B.E. Degree, or who submits satisfactory evidence that he has been engaged on works of considerable importance.
  3. The Dissertation shall consist of a record (published or not) of original work or of an essay on some branch of Engineering involving criticism.  The Candidate shall be examined on the subject-matter of his dissertation or on any matter intimately connected with it.
  4. A Candidate for the Degree shall have had professional experience of an approved character in a responsible capacity extending over a period of not less than three years.  A detailed statement as to such experience vouched for by the Engineer or Engineers in charge must be submitted.


ENMRF0002 M.ENG.SC. DEGREE EXAMINATION

Candidates must have the permission of the Faculty to enter the Course by Mode I or Mode II (see College Regulations).  The judgement of the Examiners shall be indicated by a recommendation to award the degree to a candidate who satisfies the Examiners.

MODE I
Candidates must present a Dissertation prepared during the Course, and pass an examination on the subject matter of the Dissertation if the Examiners so decide.  Candidates may be required to attend for oral examination.
MODE II
Candidates must pass an examination on the Course and may be required to submit an Essay or Dissertation as part of the qualification for the Degree. Candidates may be required to pass a viva voce examination on the subject matter of the thesis if the examiners so decide.

Pass Standard
The Pass standard is 40% in each subject.
Where the examination of a subject involves more than one paper or more than one section of a paper the examiners may, as a result of an unacceptably poor performance in an individual paper or section, refuse to award a pass mark and an “Inadequate Result” (IR) for the subject may be returned by the examiners.

Compensation
Where a candidate is taking all the written subjects at the same examination sitting, compensation may be exercised, but it shall not as a rule be exercised if:

  1. the candidate’s marks fall below 30% in any subject or the candidate has obtained an Inadequate Result (IR) in any subject.
  2. the candidate’s marks fall below 40% in more than 2 subjects.
Compensation may be exercised only when a candidate’s surplus marks are at least double the deficiency. Compensation shall not be applied to the subject Project Report nor shall surplus marks from this subject be used in the computation of surplus marks for compensation purposes.

Exemption
Candidates who have not presented in all subjects or who have not passed in all subjects will be exempted in those subjects in which they have reached the pass standard. On re-examination further exemptions may be allowed in single subjects when a candidate has reached a Pass Standard in these subjects.
