Supervision of Thesis

An academic supervisor shall be nominated for each Master's student who is required to prepare a thesis. The nomination should take place as soon as possible but not later than the end of the semester following the one in which the student was admitted. The supervisor's major field of specialization should be the same as that of the student. A co-supervisor whose major field of specialization or program is different from that of the student but related to the student's research, may be nominated.

The Program Committee submits its recommendation for the nomination of the main supervisor and co-supervisor (if any) to the College of Graduate Studies (CGS) for approval. The approval is based on satisfying the requirements stipulated by CGS. The student is supposed to have only one main supervisor. The addition of a co-supervisor should be justified and approved by the College of Graduate Studies after studying the matter.
