ENVE650 QUALLIFICATION EXAM 0 0 0
It refers to an examination that qualifies students to continue studies at a Ph.D. thesis and see how prepared they are for the looming examinations. It is almost a gauge on how knowledgeable one is within the chosen subject. It is in two steps: Written and oral examination. When the student passes the written exam he/she may take the oral exam in front of jury members. This exam is required as pre-requisite to take ENVE 600.
