Flexible Master’s Option
The “Flexible Master’s Option” is a new alternative to our traditional “On-campus Master Option” to conduct Master studies at AIT. It is applicable to selected programs at the School of Engineering and Technology (SET). Students will receive the same degree and the same academic requirements apply as the program offered in our regular “On-campus Option”. Students are allowed to do almost all coursework online via AIT’s Hybrid Mode of Instruction (Certain programs may require a lab on campus). Alternative to the online option, If the student wishes, he/she can also attend the physical classes at AIT campus.
How It Works
Typically, the 1st Year is online via AIT’s Hybrid Instruction. Students may spread coursework over more than one year. Students take the same course offered to on-campus students via Hybrid Mode. All classes are recorded for later viewing.
After completion of the coursework, students can do their research or thesis in the AIT Campus at a flexible time. In coordination with the Program Chair, students may come to campus in blocks or up to 11 months, typically for thesis research work.
Total flexible time to complete the program is 4 years.
Currently the following Programs at the School of Engineering and Technology (SET) offer the Flexible Master Option:
