Literature Review: The postgraduate candidates are required to conduct the literature review based on their research areas, research projects and optional topics so as for them to forefront of interdisciplinary research.
 
6. Competences of Postgraduates
The postgraduate students will be educated with theoretical knowledge and innovative and creative capabilities. The practices, which include social and industrial perspectives, secure a crucial position in Master training, whereas the social practices are aimed at acknowledging the national conditions, integrating theories with practices and enhancing practical problem-solving competences. The postgraduate candidates will participate in surveying and research activities. In order to improve their lecturing and presentation skills, such issues as course delivery, class discussion and seminar, experimental guidance and student assistance should be well addressed.
The postgraduate candidates should be advised under their supervisors to undertake scientific and technical research work. In this respect, the comprehensive application for knowledge discovery, analysis, problem-solving and innovation plays an important role. Meanwhile, they are encouraged to join the research projects. To this end, the state-of-the-art advances and conceptions in engineering fields, together with experiments, are urged to contain in their Master theses so as to guarantee the quality of their work.
