The first cycle engineering provides students with a wide-ranging general education preparing them for the more technical specialization in the second cycle. The first year programme emphasizes basic sciences like mathematics, physics, chemistry and computer science. The second year also initiates technical and scientific training through a number of introductory courses in engineering sciences (civil engineering, materials science, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, chemistry). In the first cycle students also receive a social education through an introductory course in general economics as well as a course in technology and the environment.
