The School of Engineering and Applied Sciences allows 2 years for full-time students completing a M.S. or M.E. degree. We intend to follow this rule strictly. Also, for M.S. students who are not doing a thesis (i.e., all course option) the time limit is 1 1/2 years (i.e., three semesters).
All EE faculty have been encouraged to advise their M.S. thesis students about this time limit. This is an official notification from the EE graduate office.
It should be clarified that this applies to M.S. and M.E. students ONLY and also to those who are undertaking full-time study.
As a reminder, all international students are full-time. Part-time study is not permitted for international students, no exceptions. If you are a domestic student you are entitled to part-time study and thereby can be granted more time to finish your M.S. or M.E. degree.
In an effort to broaden the exposure of UB graduate students' scholarly research to an international audience, The Graduate School is pleased to introduce a new service: the UB Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Web-Based Submission Interface. This interface is located on The Graduate School home page at:
Graduate School E-Thesis and E-Dissertation Submission Site
Please also go to the following site for important deadlines:
