LIFE SCIENCE AND BIOTECHNOLOGY
The doctor's degree program consists of a general curriculum of prescribed research areas. Students must study individually under the direction of a professor and present some research works at technical conferences.
Generally, five years are required to complete the doctor's degree program. On successful completion of a doctor's thesis and required examinations, a student is granted a degree of Doctor of Engineering.
However, the whole period (five years) can be separated into two]year and three]year periods. After the first period, upon successful completion of a master's thesis and required examination, a student is granted a degree of Master of Engineering.
