General Degree Programmes

 

The Faculty conducts Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) General Degree programmes and B.Sc. Special Degree Programmes in most of the Principal Subjects. Initially, a student registers for a general degree programme, and at the end of the second year, he/she may continue to follow the general degree programme or register for a special degree programme in a principal subject. The duration of a general degree programme is normally three years. General degree students may at the end of 3rd year be selected based on performance and given the option of following courses for an additional year with special emphasis on industry-related courses leading to a B.Sc. degree in Applied Sciences in place of a General Degree.

The Faculty also conducts four year B.Sc. degree programmes in Computation and Managements (jointly with the Faculty of Arts) and in Statistics and Operations Research for students admitted from a separate window.

Students should complete all three year degree programmes within five academic years from the date of admission to the Faculty.
