The program requires completion of 32 points of course credits (8 mandatory credits, 17 mandatory-elective credits, 7 elective credits). This amounts to roughly a semester and a half dedicated to courses. Students have the freedom to spread their course load as they find convenient.

Advisor and Thesis:

Beginning with the second semester of the first year, students should find an advisor and begin a research project under her/his supervision. This includes writing a thesis. Outstanding researchers are invited to join the direct-track PhD program during the second year of their degree.
