The goals of the KSHAT track (abbreviation and combination of degrees) are: encouraging undergraduate students to continue their studies for a master's degree and developing awareness among students to integrate into research already in the fourth year.
Joining the program
- A student may be admitted to the KSHAT track at the end of the third year of studies, who has accumulated at least 120 credits and whose academic achievements at the end of this year (cumulative grade point average and ranking) will correspond to the admission thresholds required for a master's degree.
- Admission to the KSHAT track is conditional on finding a supervisor who is interested in guiding the student in the research work.
- Registration for the track will be done by email to the secretary along with a resume, a grade sheet, and a letter from the faculty member explaining his acquaintance with the student and that he is ready to guide him to a master's degree.
- Registration for the master's degree will be done at the end of the last semester of the first degree studies, through the university registration section.
- Admission to the master's degree will be conditional on the student properly and fully completing the first degree, and his academic achievements at the end of the first degree (final grade point average and ranking) will correspond to the admission thresholds required for the master's degree.
- In the first year at KSH, the student will carry out a personal project of writing a research proposal. The milestones in the project will be within the submission deadlines of the engineering project in the department. The final report of the project will include a detailed proposal for the thesis which will be submitted for the approval of the supervisor and the departmental teaching committee. The student will be required to defend it before the teaching committee for the master's degree and before the supervisor; This grade will be reported to him as the grade in the engineering project in the bachelor's degree and will be used as preparation for writing the thesis for the master's degree.
- At the end of the first semester of the fourth academic year, the student will deliver to the secretariat a letter from the supervisor confirming the student's progress and the continuation of the course.
- A student whose joining the track will be approved will be able to take up to two additional master's degree courses during the second semester of the fourth academic year (toward the completion of the first degree). These courses will be transferred to the master's degree component if the student registers and continues to master's studies in the software and information systems engineering department in the following semester.
- The student will be able to receive a tuition scholarship for the master's degree, which includes the two additional master's degree courses, provided that he only studied the courses required according to the master's degree program (for courses not according to the study program, the student will have to pay independently).
- The student will be able to receive a subsistence scholarship in the last semester of his bachelor's degree studies. In return for receiving the scholarship - the student must commit to devoting most of his time to studies and research work. A student receiving a scholarship is not allowed to work outside the university to the extent that exceeds 20% of the position.
- Similar to the other master's degree students who receive a subsistence scholarship, a Kashat track student will also be able to receive a scholarship for a maximum of 24 months, including the months in which he received a scholarship during the last semester of his bachelor's degree studies.
- As a condition for receiving a scholarship and financing the tuition fees for the master's degree courses - also during the last semester of the first degree studies, a student joining the KSHAT track must regularly participate in the departmental research seminar, and register according to the departmental seminar course, as detailed in the department yearbook.
Dropped out of the program
A student who ultimately chooses not to register for a master's degree immediately upon completion of the bachelor's degree studies, or who decides to retire after registering for the master's degree, will be required to return the scholarship funds paid to him from the department's budgets and the researcher's budgets, including a tuition scholarship (if some of the courses he studied were at the master's degree level, The student will have to pay the tuition fee differences if these courses will be used to close the first degree) as well as the return of the allowance from a central training fund for scholarship holders.
- A scholarship for surplus courses in Year 4 can only be obtained in the second semester (Semester B) for up to two elective courses. However, it is possible to take surplus second-degree courses beyond this guideline, but no scholarship will be granted for them.
- Registration for second-degree courses will take place during the registration period for first-degree courses under the undergraduate component. Upon completion of the first degree, you must request to transfer the surplus courses of the second degree to the second-degree component.
