This review, along with the rest of the formal Progress Report Form, must be submitted to the Evaluation Committee (via the graduate secretary) at least two weeks before the evaluation meeting takes place.Here are progress report templates for the comprehensive exam, in latex format, or word format.
Unlike the comprehensive exam, however, proposals may be conducted at various times during the year, and are scheduled to fit availability of the proposal committee members. At least two weeks prior to the exam date, the student must submit a 20-page (maximum) written report, single spaced in 12 point font, to the graduate secretary.
The proposal committee consists of the student's supervisor(s), at least two faculty members from the School of Computer Science, and a representative of the Ph. This is distributed to the committee members, and is followed by the scheduled oral examination.
Note that earning an unsatisfactory mark twice may be cited as grounds for requiring that a student withdraw from the Ph. Choosing courses relevant to your research areas is important, but coursework must also satisfy a breadth requirement, exposing students to both theoretical and systems-related aspects of computer science.
For this courses are divided into two broad categories, and students must have course credit for at least two courses from each category.
This syllabus is meant to cover significant contributions to a particular research topic, and consists of an organized and motivated list of approximately 15–20 publications, including conference proceedings, journal articles, and theses.
Based on the approved syllabus, the student writes a literature review.Assuming a successful result, the supervisor verifies that the student makes all changes requested by the examiners and the defense committee.Once all changes have been completed, the final version of the thesis is transmitted to the thesis office and validated by the supervisor. The actual granting of degrees is done only a few of times per year, and thus while the final version of the thesis can be deposited at any time, convocation ceremonies only occur in the summer (May/June) and fall (October).Note that this is not an exhaustive (or well maintained) list, and students should consult their supervisor, the graduate secretary, or the graduate program director if in doubt. students must complete a comprehensive examination. Exams are only conducted twice a year, in late August/early September, and again in early January.506, 507, 523, 524, 525, 531, 535, 540, 547, 552, 560, 561, 563, 564, 566, 567, 598, 599 608, 610, 618, 623, 627, 642, 647, 648, 649, 650, 680, 690, 692, 760, 761 Category B, Systems and Applications 512, 520, 521, 522, 526, 529, 533, 535, 537, 557, 558, 575, 577, 598, 599, 612, 614, 617, 621, 630, 631, 644, 646, 652, 655, 656, 667, 675, 762, 763, 764, 765, 766, 767 Detailed course descriptions may be found elsewhere on the website. In order to take the exam, a student must register for COMP 700 in either the winter (January exams) or fall (August/September exams) semester.Most students will take the proposal exam at some point late in their second year of registration.The proposal exam is a public, oral exam, and like the comprehensive exam the student must register for a special course, in this case COMP 701, in the semester in which he or she intends to take the exam.The actual Evaluation Committee is formed by the Ph. Program Committee and the supervisor (or co-supervisors). 40–45 min), the student meets with the Evaluation Committee to verbally discuss the content of the progress report, and in particular answer questions from the committee pertaining to the literature review.This committee evaluates the review document, and conducts the oral examination. A student's supervisor(s) also participates in this examination.Note that while questions are mainly based on the review content, students are also expected to know relevant computer science fundamentals.During the second part, the committee meets (without the student) to discuss and vote on the student's performance. Program Committee members (decided by the Chair of the Ph. Program Committee) and the student's supervisor are voters (in the case of co-supervision, a single vote is divided among the co-supervisors).
