• Lecture
• Tutorial
• Assignment
• Group project
• In‐class Q&A discussion and quiz

In‐class exercise, Q&A discussion and quiz, laboratory exercise and coaching are used to build up logical thought and then analytical work. These teaching methods are and will be used throughout the programme structure as the instructors see fit in delivering expected outcomes of the corresponding programme.
