Programme Structure

The Bachelor curriculum enables the students to design their curriculum progressively: during the 1st and, second years, priority is given to learning the basics and building scientific foundations together with a choice deeper modules. During the 3rd and, fourth years, basic courses will have a less critical part, and students will strengthen their area of expertise with emphasis given to deeper modules.

Throughout the 4 years of the Bachelor, students will experience learning, creating and giving, designing year after year the challenges they would like to tackle during their future professional and personal life, according to three main categories:

  • Humanity and technology (living among data, robotics, quantum computing, cryptology)
  • Humanity and the planet (forecasting climate challenges, modelling condensed matter behavior)
  • Humanity and society (modelling sociological phenomenon, developing economics model for education or resources exchanges)
