Course Types

Courses “Foreign language”, “Project management”, and “Intellectual properties rights protection” are called common.

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

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

  • IN-C1 is a common course
  • IN-R1 is a required course
  • IN-E1 is an elective course

(IN in codes is a reference to the program: Inorganic Nanomaterials.)

For elective course, you should choose IN-E1.1 or IN-E1.2 course.

The code for the internship contains "-I", for example: IN-I1.

Finally, there are also a number of credits provided for research activity. The code of these "courses" contains S. For example: IN-S2.
