* Freshman students
will only be allowed to access GSCRS and register for courses after they have completed the online matriculation formalities.

Students may register and deregister from courses only within the course registration period. Students are advised to verify the courses which they have registered for in the semester before the end of the course registration period. No changes to the registered courses will be allowed after the course registration period has ended. 

Coursework Students – Master of Science (MSE)

The following are the academic loads for students in coursework programme:
Student TypeAcademic Load
Full-Time Coursework StudentsUp to 15 AUs per semester
Part-Time Coursework StudentsUp to 9 AUs per semester

Research Students – Doctor of Philosophy (MSE) & Master of Engineering (MSE)

All research students will be placed on the waiting list when they register for courses during the course registration period. The course registrations for these students will be approved by the school only after the course registration period and students will be informed via email on their approved courses on 25 Jan 2023 (Wed). Please note that MSE research students will be given enrolment priority to MSE courses before research students from other schools.

The following is the academic load for students in research programmes:

Programme of StudyAcademic Load
All Research StudentsUp to 3 courses per semester

MSE research students are strongly advised to not register for more than 3 courses per semester. Students who register for courses within this academic load will have their course registrations automatically approved by the school. No submission of supporting documents for the approval is required. 

Research students who wish to register for an additional fourth course in the semester are required to submit an appeal with the following supporting documents to the school for approval:

 

  • Justification letter or email with supervisor's approval or endorsement
  • GSCRS course registration form with supervisor’s endorsement

The above-stated supporting documents are to be submitted to MSE Graduate Studies Office (N4.1-02-12) by 19 Jan 2023 (Thu), 12.00pm. Please note that late submissions will not be entertained.

Research students who are registering for cross-school or cross-programme courses (courses not offered to the student’s programme of study) are required to submit their registrations for the courses by 17 Jan 2023 (Tue), 11:59pm.
All students may withdraw from any of their registered courses after the course registration period. All course withdrawal requests are to be submitted to the school via email by 31 Mar 2023 (Fri). The email request must indicate the course to be withdrawn from and the reason of the withdrawal.

Students will be given a ‘W’ grade for the courses they have withdrawn from in the semester, which will be reflected in all academic records including the official transcript. The grading will be excluded in the computation of the student’s CGPA. Please note that these students will still be liable for the tuition fees that are chargeable for the withdrawn courses in the semester.

Students who fail to withdraw from a course and subsequently do not attend the examination for the course will be deemed to have sat and failed the course, and an ‘F’ grade for the course will be reflected in all academic records including the official transcript. The grading will be included in the computation of the student’s CGPA.
