## B-1. 신입생 커리큘럼(BA1)

English

Academic English provides students with the basic skills needed in their degree program at Ghent University. Whether you’re taking Biology or Informatics, you must be able to understand and communicate with your professors and colleagues. Throughout the semester, students will be pushed to read and comprehend scientific articles. They should be prepared to practice interpreting them through means of in-class discussions. Students should also be able to produce works of academic writing such as research essays. Therefore, students should have a decent understanding of the English Language. Students who need extra help or have a lower TOFEL score will be able to meet with the professor for conversational, grammar, and writing lessons.

The Living World 1

The very core of bioscience engineering is that biological systems will be altered, improved and thus engineered. Therefore, an in-depth understanding of the basics of biological systems is an absolute prerequisite, which will be provided during the ‘Living World’ series and by other, more specialized biology-related courses later on in the curriculum. The ‘Living World’ series starts with a basic course in general biology, so no prior knowledge is assumed. However, an interest to study and to try to understand complex organisms at cellular, tissue and organism level is an absolute must.

Mathematics 1

Mathematics is often described as the "queen of science" because it has played an active role in the development of science and it has also benefited from its involvement in science. Particularly in bioscience engineering, there are many topics that cannot be mastered without a solid background in mathematics. Some of these topics are stability analysis and control of bioprocess plants, synthetic biology, computational and systems biology, data analysis, modeling of bio-systems and chemical networks. Consequently, in our bioscience engineering program, the mathematical education is quite rigorous and is on par with mathematical courses for other engineering programs like electrical, civil and aerospace engineering around the world. The program involves 6 compulsory mathematics courses and the student is expected to have had a good secondary/high school training in mathematics in order to cope up with the level of mathematics at Ghent University Global Campus. We expect that a prospective student has a sound knowledge in the following topics.

- Permutations and combinations.
- Mathematical Induction
- Trigonometry: Relation between sides and angles of a triangle.
- Coordinate geometry: Equations of a straight line, circle.
- Limits and Differential calculus
- Integral calculus

Inorganic Chemistry 1

Chemistry is an active, evolving science that has vital importance to our world, in both the realm of nature and the realm of society. Chemistry is so essential that it is applied in many disciplines, e.g. in inorganic chemistry (production of H2SO4, HNO3, NH3,…), in organic chemistry (production useful as agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals,…), in polymer chemistry (production of polyethylene, paints,…), petro chemistry, etc. However even outside the field of pure chemistry, e.g. biology, material engineering, bioengineering,… the chemical knowledge and basic understanding is of utmost importance. General chemistry is commonly perceived to be more difficult than most other subjects. There is some justification for this perception. For one thing, chemistry has a very specialized vocabulary. At first, studying chemistry is like learning a new language.

Therefore, Inorganic Chemistry I targets to provide the students knowledge and insight into the basic concepts of the structure of matter and the understanding of the basic laws concerning chemical changes in matter. Pre-graduate level chemistry will be reviewed and worked out in-depth so that you will develop a critical and analytical mind that “dares to think”.

Physics 1

Physics I aim to give the students a thorough training in basic physics with a focus on both principles and practical applications. Being able to understand Physics allows us to comprehend how the natural world works at all levels, from sub-microscopic to interstellar. Understanding and explaining how physical laws, such as Newton’s, apply in everyday life through the fields of mechanics and dynamics is what this course aims to provide to students.

Therefore, the students can expect:

Therefore, the students can expect:

- a quick reminder of upper year high school physics,
- to use algebra, calculus and trigonometry to analyze forces in simple mechanical systems,
- to extensively use Newton’s laws for solving problems relating to linear and rotational motions,
- to have the foundations, at the end of the course, that allow them to successfully deal with Physics 2.

Informatics 1

Scientists are often confronted with time-consuming and repetitive tasks when processing and analyzing information using computers, namely, collecting information from websites, converting files from one format into another, and analyzing, summarizing and visualizing the information obtained. The exponential flow of newly incoming information requires present-day scientists to be able to automate these tasks, in order to speed up their daily job routines. This course teaches you how to translate these time-consuming and repetitive tasks in such a way that these can be performed automatically by a computer. To that end, the necessary skills for computer-based creative problem solving will be acquired by learning to work and think in Python, one of the most widely-used programming languages in the world. The programming problems to be solved are taken from different scientific disciplines, including mathematics, biology, chemistry and physics.

In order to attend this course, students do not need to have prior programming experience. However, in order to successfully complete this course, students need to have an aptitude for mathematics and logic, as well as a willingness to solve programming problems on a weekly basis.
