Advanced Research Seminars Courses:

Ph.D. students have to participate in two seminars activities, which are based on self-learning, and presentations of new advanced topics in her/his discipline. The total credit hours of the seminar are six. The seminar ERE 702 will be conducted by distinguished Japanese and/or Egyptian Professors, while seminar ERE 703 will be conducted by students through presentations of recent Journals and papers in the student research field (state of the art). In addition, the students shall present the progress in their research projects.

    ERE 702- Advanced Research Seminar on Energy Resources Engineering
    ERE 703- Research Seminar on Recent Topics in Energy Resources Engineering

Ph.D. Thesis:

The Ph.D. candidate should prepare and defend a Thesis based on a high-value research work in one research topic in the field of Energy Resources Engineering. The Thesis should present a new contribution(s) to the subject in the respective field of research.
