Welcome from the Dean

The college of engineering at Qatar University (QU) was established in 1980 with four programs and less than 50 students. Over the years, the college has grown to become a leading college at QU with 8 undergraduate programs, 4 master programs, a PhD program and more than 1500 students, at least 100 of which are pursuing graduate studies. Qatar National Vision 2030 calls for the conversion to knowledge based economy (KBE). The essence of a KBE is research and development, and the increased focus on innovations and entrepreneurship. Hence, and on the national level, 2.8% of the GDP is pledged to support research towards achieving the KBE and consequently the vision. In response to this, and in line with the national vision, the college of engineering has started its vertical expansion by establishing master and PhD programs that cover all traditional engineering, computing, architecture, and urban planning programs as well as interdisciplinary ones. Building research capacity and local knowhow cannot be accomplished without having graduate programs. Our graduate programs are tailored towards helping working professionals to advance their knowledge and to gain research skills. The programs offer two tracks to cater for those who want to focus on the professional track by pursuing an applied project related to their field of work. The PhD program, the first of its kind in Qatar, is tailored to boost the research capacity in the college, and to help advancing the knowledge in Qatar and beyond. We hope that this catalogue gives our current and prospective students all the information about our different graduate programs as well as any other information related to students‘ life at QU.

II.

Mission of the College

The mission of the College of Engineering is to prepare globally competent and socially responsible graduates by providing high quality education. The College through its quality programs and partnerships fosters research and scholarly endeavors that advance knowledge and contribute to the welfare of the country.

III.
The College of Engineering, established 1980, serves the State of Qatar by preparing its graduates to carry out their responsibilities taking into consideration our Islamic and Arabic heritage in an industrialized world with a great number of challenging problems. We prompt graduates to be independent thinkers, articulate, encouraged to question issues and resolve problems. The academic programs offered at the College of Engineering at Qatar University were among the first in the region to achieve "Substantial Equivalency" recognition from ABET under the EC2000 accreditation criteria. Currently, all engineering programs as well as the computer science program are accredited by ABET. Our newly established Architecture program is currently in the process of applying to get accreditation from NAAB.

Strategic Objectives of the College

 Prepare globally competent and socially responsible graduates by providing quality education.  Establish effective partnerships that can add value and contribute to college programs.  Foster research and scholarly endeavors that advance knowledge.  Contribute to the welfare of the country  Create an enriching supportive working environment for the college community

GENERAL THESIS REQUIREMENTS  The primary objective of research is to innovate or discover new facts, tools, concepts, knowledge and theories. It could also include comprehensive analysis and verification of existing facts with new evidence to reconfirm the known knowledge. A thesis is a scholarly work that will consist of the student’s own account of his/her research findings, and describe how they appear to him/her to advance the study of the topic. The thesis must contain sufficient evidence to suggest that it is a distinct original contribution of the student to the knowledge of the researched field. The thesis must clearly indicate which parts of the thesis are the student’s original scholarship and distinct contributions to the field. The thesis should include the evidence that the related literatures of the field have been thoroughly reviewed, analyzed, and referenced by the student. It must provide a critical assessment of the relevant literature in relation to the research problem(s) addressed in the thesis. The thesis must include integrated as well as coherent arguments of the student, not derived from other sources. The thesis must clearly state the sources from which related work done by others have been derived, referenced, and documented. It must describe the method(s) adapted to do the investigation, and include a critical discussion on what respects they are better approach than others, and the main contribution of the student. The thesis should demonstrate the student’s ability to design and implement an independent research project. The maximum word lengths for the PhD thesis is 100,000 words, and MS thesis is 60,000 words.

PREPARING THE THESIS PROPOSAL The thesis proposal is a 1-2 page document. The purpose of the proposal is to provide the graduate committee members of the department with a clear and concise description of the proposed study in order to determine the soundness of planned thesis work. The proposal should identify clearly the research problem. The proposal is not merely a survey of the literature.     Plan and start early for your thesis Choose and discuss with your potential supervisor(s) about your specific thesis ideas Talk to your potential supervisor(s) and discuss matters that you are not sure about Pick the area for your thesis. Criteria can be: o Something (hopefully) that you like and enjoy o Something that your supervisor wants o Something that you/your advisor are funded to do. Select a research problem, select your supervisor Write and submit your thesis proposal (see Appendix A for Form-901) o Try to be as specific as possible about what you want to achieve o This will help you in pursuing your research o This will help you and your supervisor as this can serve as a contract between you and your advisor stating what you are expected to do (avoid unexpected surprises in the future). Refine proposal if any comments come from the graduate program committee Register for the thesis

 

 

A good proposal will contain several components that may include:   Tentative title of the thesis Problem o Concise statement of the problem o Scope of study Rationale o What is the purpose of the study? o Why is this purpose important? Brief review of relevant work Review or summary of existing research, methods or approaches Adding a short bibliography at the end is proper. General method(s) to be employed (if known) Expected outcome (if possible)

The candidate is therefore given the opportunity to make major specified revisions and resubmit for examination and viva by the same panel. 54 Graduate Catalog ( 2011.  Fail: no degree to be awarded o The examiners have to state as fully as possible why they were unable to make any other recommendation. Again there is a time limit (typically up to two years) for resubmission.  The degree be awarded subject to substantial amendments (without re-examination) o The thesis is considered to contain limited deficiencies that the examination panel is confident can be corrected satisfactorily by the student. If it is not possible for the examiners to reach a mutually agreed decision.ORAL EXAMINATION (PUBLIC DEFENSE) The following are the possible results from the oral examination (public defense)   The degree be awarded as it Stands The degree be awarded subject to corrections and minor modifications o Minor typographical errors or minor editorial amendments are deemed necessary. Re-examination is not needed. but a time period is usually specified in which to make the substantial amendments. These need to be specified to the candidate who will have a maximum of two months to make them. they must submit separate reports to the Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies who must bring the matter to the attention of the College Graduate Studies Committee. this should be considered as a last resort option only and every effort should be made to reach a resolution as quickly as possible with minimum impact on the student being examined. This committee will suggest an appropriate way forward.
