Programme Structure

This programme comprises a combination of program core courses, university general course, electives, and a Master’s Project. Three (3) core courses of the program must be taken by each student, which are Research Methodology, Emerging Technologies and Management, and Product Innovation and Development. Students need to choose one track from twelve (12) available tracks prior to the study. Each track requires students to take five (5) electives and one (1) free elective along with a master project relevant to the track specialization. A minimum of five (5) students is required to open any track or course. In addition, this requirement could also depend on the coordination between the program coordinator and students prior to the commencement of the semester.
