To qualify for the MSc(Geotec) degree, a candidate must successfully complete a programme of study consisting of at least 40 Modular Credits (MCs):
- 28 MCs from the list of core modules
- The remaining MCs from the list of elective modules
In addition, a student must obtain a minimum CAP of 3.00 (equivalent to an average grade of B-) for the best modules equivalent to 40MCs, inclusive of the core modules. Furthermore, the grade point obtained for each of the 7 core modules must be at least 2.5 (C+). A student is allowed one re-take for at most two core modules if the grade point obtained is less than 2.5 (C+).
The structure of the curriculum is derived from the need to meet the primary objective of the MSc(Geotec) programme, which is to produce engineers who can plan, design and supervise construction of temporary earth retaining structures in a competent and professional manner.
