Master of Science Degrees in Information Technology

MS Without Thesis

The time to complete the program is at least two semesters and at most three semesters. The following prerequisites apply for the practice and completion of the Master of Science Degrees in Information Technology without Thesis Program.

Course Requirements

  • A student must take minimum thirty credits in total with ten courses in addition to IT 592 Project course. Three of these courses must be Compulsory Courses and the rest from the Elective Course Set provided in the table below and/or from other departments with the approval of their advisor. Upon completing these courses, students who wish may also take additional courses in addition to their minimum course load with the recommendation of the Department of Computer Engineering and the approval of the Institute Administrative Board, their grades in these courses will not be factored into their grade point average but will be included in their transcript.
  • Project course: Students must prepare their project and present it at the end of the semester. Students should register this course at the semester that the Department of Computer Engineering determines and they should submit their report at the end of the semester.
  • Additionally, as stated in the Çankaya University Graduate Education Regulations in the Graduate Program without Thesis, A student may take undergraduate courses with the recommendation of the Department of Computer Engineering and the approval of the Institute Administrative Board. However, only three of these courses at the most will be factored in when calculating the course load and graduate degree credits.
  • The student may take graduate courses at universities other than Çankaya University to be factored into the course load with the recommendation of the Academic Committee of the Department of Computer Engineering and the approval of the Institute Administrative Board. The number of these courses cannot exceed three.

MS With Thesis

The following prerequisites apply for the practice and completion of the Master of Science Degrees in Information Technology with Thesis Program:

  • The time to complete the program is two years and maximum three years.
  • For students who successfully complete their for-credit courses and Seminar Course but are unable to enter the thesis exam because they could not finish their thesis by the end of the fourth semester, with the recommendation of the Department of Computer Engineering and the approval of the Institute Administrative Board an additional time of at most two semesters can be provided to take the thesis exam and defend his or her thesis.

Course Requirements

  • A student must take minimum twenty one credits in total with seven courses in addition to IT 590 Seminar, IT 591 Special Studies and IT 599 Thesis Three of these courses must be Compulsory Courses and the rest from the Elective Course Set provided in the table below and/or from other departments with the approval of their advisor. Upon completing these courses, students who wish may also take additional courses. For students who take courses in addition to their minimum course load with the recommendation of the Department of Computer Engineering and the approval of the Institute Administrative Board, their grades in these courses will not be factored into their grade point average but will be included in their transcript.
  • Seminar and Thesis courses: Students must take their Seminar, Special Studies and Thesis courses at the latest from third semester.

Every student is tasked with delivering Thesis Appointment Form to the head of Department of Computer Engineering until the end of second semester. The topic and advisor recommendation will be finalized with the approval of the Institute Administrative Board. In the event that the nature of the thesis requires more than one thesis advisor, a second thesis advisor may be designated with the recommendation of the Department of Computer Engineering and the approval of theInstitute Administrative Board.

  • Additionally, as stated in the Çankaya University Graduate Education Regulations in the Graduate Program with Thesis, A student may take undergraduate courses with the recommendation of the Department of Computer Engineering and the approval of the Institute Administrative Board. However, only two of these courses at the most will be factored in when calculating the course load and graduate degree credits.
  • The student may take graduate courses at universities other than Çankaya University to be factored into the course load with the recommendation of the Academic Committee of the Department of Computer Engineering and the approval of the Institute Administrative Board. The number of these courses cannot exceed three.
