Ⅵ. ADVISORYCOMIMITEE AND SUPERVISORY

The master postgraduate students should bedirected by a qualified major supervisor (M.S. graduate faculty), as well as acommittee panel containing several qualified co-advisors/committee members. Theproposed advisory committee should consist of at least 4 members of the graduatefaculty, including the major advisor, who acts as the chair, where two of themmust come from the School of the Environment and Safety Engineering,with at least one with a full time position of the graduate faculty. Theremaining two members may come from School of the Environment and SafetyEngineering or from other colleges at JU (at least one with the full timeposition to serve as the Graduate Faculty at JU). If the student declares aminor, one committee member should be invited from the declared minor department/college.The committee should be established by end of the second semester inthestudent’s graduate career. 

 

. OTHER ISSUESAND REQUIREMENTS  

Graduate students are required to initiatetheir thesis study projects prior to the end of the second semester. Themedium-term examination for thesis study is scheduled in the fourth semester.Other following important schedules relevant to your graduate study could befound from the Overseas Education College (OEC) at JU. Ingeneral, a Master’s student is required to have a research proposal and a planof study accepted by his or her graduate advisory committee by end of thesecond semester of study. A list of completed courses taken in other accrediteduniversities and those to be proposed for PhD grogram should also be preparedbefore the first committee meeting. A meeting of the advisory committee shouldbe scheduled by the student to discuss his/her proposal and course work. 

  Everygraduate student is required to publish research paper in a relevant INTERNATIONALJOURNAL prior to being eligible to apply a thesis defense. The publishedacademic papers and research achievements should meet other university’s requirements< apply for degree ofjiangsuuniversity graduate student academic papers published during the period of learning>.
