There will be make up classes during the remaining weeks of the semester in the event of prolonged closures due to factors beyond our control.

Attendance

The monthly attendance record of students will be displayed on the notice board of the concerned department.

 

A student who remains absent from classes for ten (10) consecutive working days will be informed by the concerned HoD through the Departmental notice board as well as his/ her parents through a registered letter at home address warning about the consequences.

 

In case, a student remains absent for twenty (20) consecutive working days from the classes he/she will cease to be a student of KUST. This shall be notified by the HoD with copy to the parents, concerned Dean, Director Academics, Controller of Examinations, Director Finance, and PS to Vice Chancellor.

 

If a student fails to register courses in a semester, he/she shall be notified through the departmental notice-board asking to explain his/ her position. The concerned HoD shall also inform the parents of the student through a registered courier letter dispatched within 03 days after the closing date of registration. If the University does not receive any reply within ten (10) working days after the dispatch of the letter, either from the student or from the parents, the student shall cease to be a student of KUST.

 

This shall be notified by the concerned HoD with a copy to the student.

Course Codes

Every course offered at KUST is identified by a unique alpha-numeric code, usually three to four letters followed by three digits. The letters represent the major field. The first digit represents the level of the course (or the year in which the course is normally offered). For example; a course offered to the 3rd year students of a regular BS degree programme will carry the digit 3; the first year MSc/MA programme will also be assigned 3; MS/MPhil (graduate) programme will be assigned the digit 5 and 6; and the PhD level courses will carry 7 and 8. Sometimes no distinction is made in MPhil and PhD level courses. The second digit represents the broad area of the course. Each department classifies all the courses offered into broad areas. The digit 0 at this position normally refers to the basic introductory level general courses of the discipline. The third or the last digit stands for the sequence of the course offered in the same area in the same year.
