GUC Academic Preparation of Students
In the first and second semesters, GUC offers a wide variety of courses representing
the basic GUC requirements in Basic Sciences and Complementary Subjects. Thereafter,
the study programs will be divided into four academic groups:
- The Engineering Group (Engineering and Materials Science, Information Engineering
and Technology, Media Engineering and Technology)
- The Biological Sciences Group (Pharmacy and Biotechnology)
- The Management Group (General Management, Technology-based Management and Business Informatics)
- Applied Sciences and Arts Group (Graphics Design, Multimedia Design and Product Design)
Engineering: For those with a preliminary academic interest in Engineering,
a good preparation in Computer applications, Mathematics and Physics is desirable
for students interested in the scientific and technical fields of Engineering.
Biological Sciences: For those with a preliminary academic interest
in Biological Sciences, a good preparation in Biology and Chemistry is desirable
for students interested in the fields of Pharmacy and Biotechnology.
Management: For those with a preliminary academic interest in Management,
a good preparation in Human and Technical Sciences is desirable for students interested
in the fields of General Management. However, for Technology-based Management, basic
knowledge of Natural Sciences is desirable.
Applied Sciences and Arts: Designed for students who have the artistic
talent and motivation to join any of the design fields.
Choice of Academic Group
Students will indicate in their applications their intention to study in a specific
Choice of Major
GUC provides common semesters, for each academic group of
students to develop the basic skills needed in their pursuit of academic degrees.
This allows students in each group to make a free decision on the choice of Major.
Flexibility to Transfer between Academic Groups
Students who indicate their intentions to study in a specific academic group will
have the flexibility to change their group of choice before the announced deadlines,
provided that they meet the requirements of the chosen study group and the final
decision will depend on the availability of free places in the required study group.
Flexibility to Transfer between Majors
After selecting their Faculty and Majors, students will have the flexibility to
change their Majors before the announced deadlines. Details will be given in the
individual program descriptions where transfer is possible.
