INTERDISCIPLINARY DIPLOMAS OR DEGREE STUDIES WHERE REQUIRED

In order to deal with this responsibly, as well as to accommodate each case academic institutions in collaboration with other academic establishments all over the world, have devised a new academic system of INTERDISCIPLINARY MAJORS at all degree levels. It has been found that the latest trends in industry and commerce is to employ graduates or positions having completed studies with dual majors. Therefore, for example those at the master’s degree level may have an MBA with engineering management as a second major etc. This type of degree structure is an added advantage because it gives due recognition to the business manager for instance who is required to have technical and managerial training or similarly engineering training combined with managerial education. The same applies to other scientific professions such chemistry, biology etc.
For "Civil, Electrical, Electronic, Mechanical, Chemical, - Engineering" related education, for them we could arrange a degree e.g. as follows: Degrees at the levels of: Bachelor or Master or Doctor of Applied Science, or Biology with an emphasis on Chemical Engineering (major) as the case may be.

FACULTY RELATED CERTIFICATE AND DIPLOMA PROGRAMS

GENERAL INFORMATION

All FACULTY developed programs are equivalent to university degree programs. For example, a BBA would be equivalent to the Advanced Diploma and a Master’s Degree equivalent to the Graduate Diploma. Usually when students are enrolled within universities where they study FACULTY developed degree programs they are eligible to apply to the FACULTY for the appropriate Society credential. The Society will award them our related credential and appropriate transcript upon application and payment of the applicable fee. Where students are enrolled into joint FACULTY – University Degree programs, students will receive their FACULTY credentials at no additional cost upon successful completion of the program.

Likewise, where FACULTY enrolled students have successfully completed their Society diploma program they may apply to the FACULTY for the equivalent degree awarded by the cooperating university. In this case the appropriate graduation fees and any administrative fees payable must be paid.

It is usually advantageous for students to choose to enroll first into the FACULTY program and to transfer their credits to the equivalent university degree program at a later stage or to apply for the degree upon completion. During their studies they are able to study more flexible as well as having more freedom due to different rules and regulations while enrolled via the Faculty. The equivalency of the programs makes it possible to consider this as an option because the same textbooks, study guides and coursework requirements are used.

Students may apply to the FACULTY through our appointed representatives or cooperating partners for these awards.

ENROLLMENT

The FACULTY uses the open enrollment system, which means students may enroll at ant date and time throughout the year. Students may also enroll for the complete program or part of any program or for each section such as the certificate, diploma and complete program. The usual rules applicable to universities will apply. Where students do not have the required entry level knowledge or requirements, the FACULTY will prescribe bridging coursework as required to meet the minimum entry level requirements.

SINGLE SUBJECTS

Any subjects for any diploma program may be taken as a single course. Students may enroll at any time to study single subjects. Subjects may be listed on transcripts and specified as independent completed coursework. For less than seven completed courses, the FACULTY will issue the usual transcript in the prescribed manner. For completed coursework containing more than seven subjects, the FACULTY will award a certificate and transcript. For more than fourteen subjects, a diploma will be awarded when students choose to study single subjects.

DIPLOMA PROGRAM COURSES AND STRUCTURE UNDER ARTICULATION WITH COLLABORATING UNIVERSITIES

ASSESSMENT SYSTEM

The assessment method used will be based on the usual combination of percentage – symbol weighted system. In general the FACULTY would adapt to any other prescribed system or style and will use the usual USA as well as following the Commonwealth method used for indicating results.

COMMONWEALTH SYSTEM: As a guide, the following assigned weight – symbols are used: (100 - 95)% = A+; (94 – 90)% = A-; (89 – 85)% = B+; (84 – 80)% = B-; (79 – 75)% = C+; (74 – 70)% = C-; (69 – 65)% = D+; (64 – 60)% = D-; (59 – 55)% = E+; (54 – 50)% = E-; Below 50% = F (fail); N = absent; P = pass on transfer credit.

Any other system may be used if it is acceptable. To ensure that the University’s assessment system is in line with the usual academic practices, the minimum pass mark for examinations, tests, assignments, laboratory or practical work is 50% or a C symbol.

USA SYSTEM:  The above method of employing and using symbols and percentages shall apply also to the USA system. The weights for indicating grade point shall be as follows:

Credits: the FACULTY shall base it credits on the usual Carnegie Model. The following calculation method below is used –
