Program delivery:

The program offers two fundamental tracks to prospective candidates- the thesis-based research track and the general track without a thesis all in English.
In the research track, students engage in advanced courses while conducting research under the guidance of experienced faculty members. The general track entails participation in a broader array of advanced courses, culminating in the preparation of a seminar paper. Specifically tailored for industry engineers, the general track does not permit further studies for a Ph.D. The study structure for each student is individually determined by dedicated advisors and supervisors, ensuring a personalized educational experience
