The Freshman year is divided into two 18-week semesters. Students attend lectures approximately 36 hours per week.
The Christmas or winter break is from 24 December to 2 January.
The Easter break includes the Friday before Easter as well as the Monday after Easter, so students have a long weekend.
One additional long weekend in the spring is reserved for the 3 day trip to another city.
During the remaining weeks students prepare for and take midterm and final exams.
Final exams are in mid to late August.
*Students interested in civil engineering must submit eight weeks of internship in activities related to civil engineering and construction upon application to the Freshman program.
