    Programme détaillé

    LAB301 is offered in the fall semester of year 3 (semester S5). A student cannot register if he already took LAB251.  A student can register at a given semester only if he has been accepted in a specific research project and if his schedule allows for such a project, by allowing at least two consecutive slots on a fixed day.  Finding a research project  and being accepted in such a project is the responsibility of the interested student. Acceptance is based on a written proposal signed by the researcher supervising the project and approved by the academic advisor of the associated department or by the referent instructor designated by this advisor. The proposal describes the topic of the research project, its objective and the task given to the student. After signature and approval, it is transmitted to the year officer.

    An approved project would require that a student prepares his project in a laboratory on campus, on the basis of half a day per week during the  14 weeks of the whole semester.
