In the subjects listed above, those marked "special research subject" are credits for the master's thesis and those marked "project subject" are credits for participation in the Desing Project.
Class days and times are subject to change from semester to semester.

"Internship 1/2" provides opportunities to gain experiences that would not be possible in the classroom, improve professionalism, and understand the relationship between academic and real life. They also allow students to assess their aptitude for their desired careers. Credit is awarded to students who use summer vacations and other periods to participate in internships at companies and research institutes outside of the university. The credit is conditional upon the submission of an activity report. The amount of credit awarded depends on the length of the internship. For details, contact the SDM Office.
