In the first semester, all students of the MITM degree study the same program. At the end of the first semester, students can apply to the research program. The school will approve the application based on the academic result of the first semester, the draft research proposal and the reference of lecturers.

Each student following the research program has to have a research paper published in international conference, national or international journals to fulfill the graduating conditions. During the research thesis, students are checked twice:
