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
  • "QP-R1" is a required course
  • "QP-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 QP-E1.x course. You have to take excatly one of these electives. There are also QP-E1..x courses when you have to take two courses.

Finally there are also a number of hours provided for a scientific activity. Code of these "courses" contains S. For example:

  • "QP-S1" is a term research project.
