By establishing fruitful interaction between professors and students, to help students overcome learning difficulties, and to guide them in their career planning.
The first objective of our department is a substantive one; after that is our results objective. Our department has specific methods for reaching the substantive target and utilizes our university’s course evaluation system, the advising system, and the responses of alumni to understand whether the results objective is reached.
Our students are welcome to provide suggestions regarding the objectives of the department by filling out a special questionnaire.
