Ph.D. Qualifying Exam



The CORE part of the Ph.D. qualifying exam will be held on May16 and May 19, 2018 in two separate sessions. All the students will participate in both of the sessions. The BREADTH part will be held starting from November 25, 2016 depending on the date and time arrangements for each examination jury. For details about both parts, please refer to the “CENG Ph.D. Qualifying Exam Guidelines” available at

Especially, please note the change in the Core exam conduct.

 The students who would like to take the Ph.D. Qualifying Exam must give a petition to the Department Chair indicating the breadth topic that they choose and the courses they “DO NOT want to be exempt” (for the courses they earned an exemption in the previous exam) until May 19, 2019.
