Students are required to submit an electronic copy (PDF format) of their final and approved thesis for deposit in the MBZUAI Electronic Thesis and Dissertation collection, with the approval of their supervisors and the Associate Provost, and to fulfill their graduation responsibilities.
A thesis deposit agreement is required to support the deposit of a thesis in the MBZUAI Library. The agreement determines the conditions of public access and may allow MBZUAI Library to make the contents of the work discoverable on the institutional repository, MBZUAI eCommons.
Required embargo periods are covered by the thesis agreement and should be approved by the Associate Provost.
Congratulations! Your thesis has been accepted and all other degree requirements have been met.
