The College of International Education, the Graduate School, and the School supervising the field or discipline of study may terminate the doctoral program of a student who fails to demonstrate satisfactory progress
  3. Doctoral students should demonstrate in their dissertations that the author has an independent ability to engage in scientific research and made creative achievements in their discipline or specialized technology. Dissertations written by Doctoral students in engineering technology or applied science should include an explanation of the important practical value, and show that the author has the ability to undertake independent scientific research or specialized technical work at the same time.
  4. PhD’s dissertations can be written in Chinese or English. Abstracts for Foreign students’ dissertation should be written in Chinese. International students must have the dissertation delivered to, defended in, and accredited to BJUT.
