Outline of School/Graduate School of Engineering

The Undergraduate School of Engineering comprises of the 5 Departments shown on the table below. Students first enter one of these Departments as freshmen. At the beginning of the second year, they can take one of the courses in the Department (They select one course based on their academic score). Each student then acquires the necessary credits for graduation in one of these basic engineering courses.

After graduation, about 80% of the students at NU usually enter the Graduate School.

In the Graduate School of Engineering, students proceed with studies in the Disciplinary and the Interdisciplinary Departments also shown on the table below. For example, a student graduating from the undergraduate sub-department of applied chemistry can enter the Crystalline Materials Science department, where the professors come from the Applied chemistry (sub-department), Materials Science department and Applied Physics department.
