Spring 2022 - MSE 890 G200
PhD Qualifying Examination
Class Number: 1290
Delivery Method: In Person
Course Times + Location:
Prerequisites:PhD Students in the School of Mechatronic Systems Engineering (MSE).
The candidacy exam enables the Supervisory Committee and the School to determine if the student is properly prepared to embark on the proposed research program. Upon admission to the PhD program, each student must enroll in this course each semester. A SATISFACTORY grade is granted once the student submits a written research proposal and successfully defends it during an oral presentation before her/his supervisory committee. The candidacy exam must be completed after 6 terms enrollment. Under special circumstances, and subject to approval by the Supervisory and Graduate Program committees, a student who does not pass the exam (UNSATISFACTORY grade) may be given a second chance by enrolling in MSE 890 one more time. This course is a prerequisite for MSE 899 (PhD Thesis).

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS
SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating. Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.
Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
TEACHING AT SFU IN SPRING 2022
Teaching at SFU in spring 2022 will involve primarily in-person instruction, with safety plans in place. Some courses will still be offered through remote methods, and if so, this will be clearly identified in the schedule of classes. You will also know at enrollment whether remote course components will be “live” (synchronous) or at your own pace (asynchronous).
Enrolling in a course acknowledges that you are able to attend in whatever format is required. You should not enroll in a course that is in-person if you are not able to return to campus, and should be aware that remote study may entail different modes of learning, interaction with your instructor, and ways of getting feedback on your work than may be the case for in-person classes.
Students with hidden or visible disabilities who may need class or exam accommodations, including in the context of remote learning, are advised to register with the SFU Centre for Accessible Learning (firstname.lastname@example.org or 778-782-3112) as early as possible in order to prepare for the spring 2022 term.
