Graduate Programs


Studying for Master’s degree aims at enchanting the student’s research capabilities and scientific thinking as a step towards research and development in the area, branch and topic the student selects through the use of modern advanced technological and scientific techniques. This is achieved through studying a number of advanced courses, in addition to conducting applied or comparative researches in order to improve student’s abilities to express their ideas and knowledge in writing. Students would, therefore, be able to prepare, submit and defend a coherent research thesis, and publish at least one research paper extracted from the contents of the thesis.
