Overview

The graduating students of the Division of Biotechnology in the College of Life Sciences & Biotechnology are required to write a graduation thesis based on research conducted under the guidance of an academic advisor (in principle, they are required to conduct experimental research, but non-experimental research, such as a general survey of the field, statistical research, and bioinformatics analysis, is also permitted) or based on a literature review. Those who write a thesis based on experimental research are given two semesters to complete it, and they must submit an interim report at the end of the first semester and a graduation thesis at the end of the second semester. Those who write a thesis based on non-experimental research have one semester to complete their work. They must submit a graduation thesis at the end of the semester and no presentation or interim report submission is required.
