The Education Committee will discuss and try to solve problems arising from the revision of the bachelor's and master's degree programs, in cooperation with the Department's institutes and administration. It will act as a mediator between students and teachers, institutes and administration. In particular, it will assess the feasibility of suggestions for reforming bachelor's and master's degree programs and may propose changes.
