1 Grade for Undergraduate studies n Electrical Engineering 30
2 Grade for Undergraduate studies on a relevant subject 20
3 Relevance of Diploma Dissertation to the objectives of the Postgraduate program 15
4 Professional experience relevant to the Postgraduate Program 15
5 Scientific & Research Project, relevant to the Postgraduate Program 15
6 Additional skills & Qualifications (seminars, studies, etc) 15
Total 100


The number of evaluation points in the above table describes the maximum points that can be assigned by the admission committee for a given candidate. For the first two evaluation criteria, the score is calculated as the product of the percentage of mark of the degree in relation to the maximum possible mark of that degree and the evaluation points (weight) of each criterion.

The admission committee shall create the list of suitable candidates for the program. The final selection is based on the rank of each candidate in that list, which subsequently is ratified by the G.A.S.C. and is published through the Secretary office of the program on the project website.

The admitted students are informed electronically by the secretary office of the project and are invited to enroll for the program within 15 days, accepting its terms and conditions and paying the first installment of the tuition fee. Non-attendance or non-payment of the first installment of tuition fees by a successful candidate within the above deadline is equivalent to a refusal to accept the program offer, hence the secretary office is authorized to immediately inform the higher-ranked unsuccessful candidate of the evaluation list.

Candidates’ objections to the evaluation process are submitted to the secretary office of the program within five (5) working days of the announcement of the results. The objections are being reviewed by the C.C and their suggestions are forwarded to G.S.S.C. Ultimately, the G.S.S.C decides whether to accept the suggestions of C.C regarding the objection that was made, or not.
