The evaluation and selection of the candidates for Master's students is done in accordance with Law 3685, Official Gazette 148/16-07-08, article 4, paragraph 1, by the coordination committee of the MSc. The selection process includes a specialized algorithm with which the qualifications of the candidates are scored. The relevant algorithm is determined by the Assembly of the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management with the aim of selecting the candidates with those necessary conditions that maximize the probability of successful attendance of Master's progamm.
The selection process is carried out based on the following criteria which are quantified through scoring, which is decided by the Department Meeting (DM):
- Relevance of the subject of the candidate's undergraduate studies to the scientific area of the Master's program
- General grade of degree
- Grading in Master's program related courses
- Relevance and Dissertation Performance
- Any related research activity
- Any relevant work experience
- Existence of another degree or Master's degree
The evaluation includes a personal interview in which the candidate's personality is assessed. The ability to communicate clearly and persuasively, sound judgment, as well as the candidate's overall make-up are of particular importance in forming an opinion about the candidate.
Applicants must have a proven command of English, as teaching in English is possible. The FCE diploma or a TOEFL score of 550 points or a GRE in Computing score of 550 points or equivalent qualifications are considered as a minimum requirement for proven knowledge of English, which are accepted after the recommendation of the Coordinating Committee (CC) and the decision of the DM.
The candidate selection and evaluation process can be updated with a proposal from the CC and an approval decision from the DM.
Postgraduate students have the possibility, after a proposal from the CC and approval from the DM of the department to assist professors of the Undergraduate Study Program (USP) in tutorial exercises and workshops as well as to participate in research projects and programs, related to their scientific subject.
