The graduate program, M.S. in Applied Physics & Electronics (APE), is designed for people who like to work in electronics, materials and energy related industries, communication, medical services, instrumentations, environment, industrial planning and development, and to pursue research for creative work and teaching.
From the point of feasibility of the proposed program, we expect to attract some experts from outside, besides the existing relevant teaching staffs of our University. Other than the existing lab facilities at our university, we can make use of the facilities existing in different educational institutions and research establishments in the country.
Length of the Program
The M.S. program in APE is usually a three-semester program. Students may be allowed to spend maximum up to six semesters.
Usually the minimum and maximum credit load per semester is two courses (6 credits) and four courses (16 credits) respectively.
Classes will be conducted in the evening slots and in the weekends. The academic year is divided into three semesters described below:
Spring - January to April
Summer - May to August
Fall - September to December
Who May Apply
Students with four year undergraduate bachelors degree in Physics / Applied Physics / Electronics / Computer Science / Computer Engineering/Electrical Engineering/Communications Engineering and who earned a minimum of second class or CGPA of 2.5 (out of 4.0) in the bachelor´s degree are invited to apply for admission. Students with three years undergraduate degree and one year masters degree may also apply for admission.
Candidates for the M.S. degree in Applied Physics & Electronics must successfully complete minimum of 35 credit hours.
Students must earn at least 14 credit hours of course work and 6 credit hours of project work.
Credit Transfer Policy
A maximum of 12 credits equivalent course works completed in a recognized institution may be taken as transferred credit. The negotiation of institutions shall be approved by the Graduate Committee of the relevant Department.

Below 60 Failure F 0
Transfer Credit TR
Satisfactory S For Research Project only
Unsatisfactory U For Research Project only
A course with a grade of ´C´ and below may be retaken only once.
Incomplete (I) grade may be granted only in exceptional cases, such as, when serious ilness or work related travel is documented and when substantial course requirements have already been completed. The student must seek approval from both the relevant course instructor and the Chairperson of the Department prior to the regularly scheduled final examination. If remaining course work has not been completed by the end of week 1 of the next semester, grade ´I´ automatically becomes grade ´F´.
Students may withdraw from a course within first five weeks, and receive the grade ´W´, provided that after such withdrawal, the student will have at least 6 credits course load. Withdrawals are not allowed after this time. All withdrawals notices must be communicated to both the course instructor and Chairperson of the Department. The amount of refund is related to the date of withdrawal as indicated in the academic calender.
Probation, Dismissal, and Re-admission
A student is required to maintain a minimum CGPA of 2.5 throughout the academic period. If a student fails to maintain her/his CGPA to 2.5, she/he will be put on probation status. If she/he fails to raise her/his CGPA to 2.5 within the next two consecutive semesters, she/he will be dismissed from the program. However, a student dismissed from the program may apply through Chairperson of the Department to the Dean of the faculty for re-admission. Re-admission will not be granted without strong evidence of significant change in the student´s ability to satisfactorily complete the program requirements.
A student is allowed up to three years from the date of the initial enrolment to complete her/his degree requirements. Under certain circumstances, the time limit may be extended upon request to the Dean of the faculty through the Chairperson of the Department.
