Study programs

The Bachelor Engineering programs are structured in eight semesters (odd semesters are Autumn term; even semesters are Spring term). Each B.Eng. program makes 240 ECTS credits.
Here you can find our academic offer with the following scale:
* Level of instruction in English:
3 = Course conducted in English.
2 = Support, teaching aid, bibliography and exam in English.
1 = Tutorials and support from the teacher in English.
0 = No English.

(For Master courses you need to check our postgraduate offer; your proposal of Learning Agreement will be considered by each Master coordinator who will approved or not the proposed courses)
