Laboratory profile
The aim is to learn the process of problem-solving through research for MA theses or graduation theses. Valuing the independence of mind and having fun time, research will be conducted. In addition, academic conferences (domestic as well as international) and paper exhibitions will be proactively approached. When we party, we party hard!
