MST program emphasizes establishment of problem-solving ability and developing individual’s self-reliance and self-confidence to conduct independent research work. In this program, faculty members will take turns to serve as mentors for first-year students until they have formally joined a research group to conduct their thesis study, which should take place within the first two semesters after their admission into this graduate program. As a rule, students complete a program of required courses before embarking on the research training. The MST program adopts a team-teaching system, where each faculty member teaches the subject according to his or her expertise. Courses offered include required and elective courses. All courses will be delivered in English
