At the Faculty of Science and Technology we offer a wide range of courses and programs and actively strive to update our curriculum in tune with the progress in research areas and with the developments in the job market. The world class achievements at our research centers with staff comprising of various nationalities and the connection with industry lead to interdisciplinary and international approach even in our academic programs.
