Students can choose nine courses belonging to two groups for each curriculum. The first group includes key courses for the specific curriculum, whereas the second group includes foundation courses and/or courses common to the different curricula.

Several courses involve project work carried out in laboratories, aimed at developing and testing advanced solutions for problems whose complexity is similar to those found in the real world. Besides traditional courses, students can attend one of the complementary six-credit activities offered each year by the CAD (Area Educational Board). Such activities equip students with transversal competencies that contribute to making their university career comprehensive and encouraging their access to the job market.

The total number of hours available to students for personal study or other individual activities will be defined according to the program regulations.
