Student status is acquired upon initial registration at the ECE School, is maintained upon registration and declaration of courses in each semester of study, and is revoked upon the declaration and receipt of the Engineering Diploma. ECE School students are considered full-time students. As an exception, students who have evidence of working at least 20 hours a week may register as part-time students, following their application, which is approved by the Dean's Office of the School.
The student has the right to interrupt his studies for a maximum of four (4) whole semesters, consecutive or not, if there is a reason, with his written request before the start of the interrupted semester. These semesters are not counted in the duration of studies, however, the validity of the student status also ceases throughout the period of interruption of studies. Student status is restored in the semester following the end of the interruption with the student's return to the School.
