A blend of practical work and theory. Students build up their laboratory skills and have opportunities to use computers both for simulations and laboratory interface activities.

Students are encouraged to become self-motivated, self-directed people. They manage their own laboratory time and take tests as they are ready for them. Creative presentation skills are encouraged.

This provides students with skills that will benefit them in higher education institutions and in the workplace.
