SYLLABUS

The syllabus is integrated to the program objectives and areas of research interest and guides teaching and research activities. The course subjects are structured around three major axes:

  • Core subjects – Mandatory or recommended subjects comprise the core curriculum and are thought to be highly relevant for all students. The recommended subjects serve as specific basis for the areas of research interest and therefore are taken according to students’ needs and interests. Research group leaders are responsible for coordinating the respective subjects and areas of research interest.
