The total credits are 48. “General courses” have 25 credits including in Politics, English and PE. “General Education Core Courses” have 8 credits in “Humanities Sciences”, 4 credits in “Social Sciences” and 9 credits in “Natural sciences and Engineering Technology”. The total credits are 21. “General Education Practice Courses” have 2 credits.

(2)  Specialized Education Courses

“Specialized Education Courses” include “Platform Basic Courses”, “Specialized Core Courses” and “Elective Courses”. The total credits are 88. Each student must select at least one course (English) in the fifth - seventh semester.


A .Platform Basic Courses

  • Platform Basic Courses” consist of “Required Courses” and “Elective Courses”. “Ideas and Methods of Program Design” of “Required Courses “can also be used for credits for “Natural sciences and Engineering Technology” of “General Education Courses”. In  “Elective Courses”, the following three courses are highly recommended for the need of further specialty study:

                a. Electromagnetic Field and Electromagnetic Wave (4 credits)

                b. Signals and Systems A (4 credits)

                c. Data Structures and Algorithms A (4 credits)

              B .Specialized Core Courses

       “Specialized Courses” consist of “Specialized Core Courses” with at least 16 credits (in-class) and “Specialized Core Optional Courses “with at least 10 credits. And the extra credits can be used for the credits of “Specialized Elective Courses”.

              C .Specialized Elective Courses

        “Specialized Elective Courses” consist of “Theoretical Frontiers (Group A)” and other six Groups (Group B to Group G). Each Group has three to five similar courses (except Group A). Students should choose at least two groups from Group A, B, C, D, E, F and G.And the extra credits can be used for the credits of “Personalized Education Courses”.
