    Honors Program

    As soon as students join the program, they begin to get hands-on experience in laboratory research-based learning, mentored by their laboratory supervisor & faculty advisers in their major. Researched-Based Learning continues throughout four years in the Program. Students are guided by a supervisor and advisers to create an interdisciplinary major by combining selected courses that fit their individual learning needs. First-year students can start researching a theme or a specific issue and formulate a specific curriculum accordingly.

While undertaking Research-Based Learning, students also
study foundational science courses, required specialized
subjects and other disciplines to ensure they gain
the deep understanding needed for advanced research.
The capacity to demonstrate international teamwork and
leadership is fostered by incorporating presentations and
discussions. The curriculum is also structured to ensure
that each graduate also carries the Program’s core values of
ethics, respect for diversity, and social contribution into
their careers.
