Each academic year consists of 40 weeks of study, divided into four modules. Each module centres on a particular theme and features a number of theoretical courses and a practical. You will then apply the knowledge you acquire in a collaborative project with your fellow students. You will specialize not only in science and engineering but also in society and entrepreneurship. The ratio between societal subjects and technical subjects is approximately 1 to 10. Read more about the first, second and third years of the programme.
