Course Types

If the course is not directly related to the master program's specialisation then it is called common.

You must take the common and required courses, and choose several elective courses.

The "Code" field in the curriculum tables below tells wither course is common, required or elective. For example:

  • "C2" is common cource
  • "AMS-R1" is a required course
  • "AMS-E3.2" is an elective course.

The decimal number code of the elective cources tells if there are alternatives. For example, you can choose only one AMS-E1.x course. You are not allowed to take more than one of these electives.

The code for the internship contains I:

  • AMS-I1 stands for the internship in the fourth term.

Finally, there are also a number of credits provided for research activity. The code of these "courses" contains S. For example:

  • AMS-S2 is a research work you will do in the second term.
