Regulation
Abidance to Regulations and Study Perseverance:
Students are strictly forbidden to enter the campus without their identity card. Using lots of parking on campus, requires a special permission. Students are imperatively required to attend their classes, conferences and tutorials. Any student who fails to attend 80 per cent of a course will be automatically dropped out unless exempted by the Head of the Department on the basis of a valid excuse.

All registered students have to abide by the university regulations and avoid undisciplined behavior and practices; otherwise they will be subject to serious disciplinary warnings that could develop a definitive expulsion.

Exams
Each semester, students must present one partial and one final exam in addition to ongoing quizzes and various projects assigned by the administration and teachers. Class participation is also taken into consideration.

The final grade is calculated as follows:
