3.1.2 Successful completion of the MTech (or equivalent) degree may allow a candidate to register for a Doctoral Degree in Technology (Doctores Technologiae – DTech). Regulations on application and registration for a higher degree are contained in the “University of Johannesburg Postgraduate Research Manual”. This document can be obtained from the UJ Intranet, the offices of the Faculty Administrators, Faculty Research Manager or from the Office of the Dean of Research.

UNIVERSITY OF JOHANNESBURG Faculty Regulations for Engineering and the Built Enviroment 11 EP3.2 STUDY FOR THE MASTERS DEGREE PROGRAMME 3.2.1 Candidates for the Masters degree programme in Engineering are normally admitted for study on the grounds of a four year Bachelors degree in Engineering but in each case on recommendation of the Head of the relevant Department.

3.2.2 Study towards the Masters degree programme in the Faculty can be undertaken in any of the following manners: (i) A research and/or development project and the compilation of a dissertation. The study is concluded by an oral presentation. (ii) Lectured Masters degrees consist of lectured modules and a minor dissertation as determined by the Head of the relevant Department. 3.2.3 A core requirement for the MIng and MPhil degrees is the development of a demonstrated ability to carry out own research in a fundamental manner. The ability can be developed by carrying out a pure research programme.

Alternatively, the theoretical knowledge required at Masters’ level can be supplemented by coursework while the ability to carry out research is still demonstrated by a significant research component. To ensure that both the taught and research components are significant, each should comprise 50% of the programme credits.

EP3.3 DOCTORAL STUDY 3.3.1 Candidates for doctoral study in Engineering are under normal conditions admitted on the grounds of a Masters degree in Engineering but in each case on recommendation of the Head of the relevant Department. 3.3.2 Doctoral studies exist of independent research and developmental work and an applicable thesis. The study is concluded with a presentation. EP4 REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS For specific Faculty Admission requirements please see Regulation EP3. 4.1 All undergraduate students who enroll for the first time at the University of Johannesburg have to submit certified copies of their academic records and certificates of conduct applicable to all previous degrees obtained.

4.2 Students from other universities who wish to continue their studies at the University of Johannesburg have to submit their Academic Records and Certificates of Good Conduct, issued by the other university, at registration. 4.3 All admission documents as requested by the University for undergraduate and postgraduate students who register for the first semester, have to be submitted by 15 May. Candidates who register for the second semester have to comply with this requirement by 15 September.

4.4 Failure to submit admission documents timeously will result in the cancellation of registration. Registration of students is conditional until all requirements for admission have been met.
