Special 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 register for a special degree
programme in a principal subject. This is possible only if he/she fulfills
certain criteria as stipulated in the section "Criteria for Selection to
a Special Degree Programme". The duration of a special degree programme
is four years. General degree students may at the end of 3 rd 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.
