1 At a master´s degree level, student reaches new knowledge via scientific researches, the use of knowledge of the same field as him/her or of different field from him/her, and the use of knowledge based on the competence in his/her field; s/he interprets the knowledge and prospects for the fields of application. X
2 Student completes the missing or limited knowledge by using the scientific methods.
3 Student freely poses a problem of his/her field, develops a solution method, solves the problem, and evaluates the result. X
4 Student conveys, orally or in writing, his/her studies or the current developments in his/her field to the people in or out of his/her field.
5 Student finds a solution to the unforeseen complex problems in his/her studies by developing new approaches. X
6 At a doctorate degree level, student prepares at least one scientific article of his/her field to be published in an international indexed journal, and s/he extends its popularity.
7 Student analyzes the works that have been published before, approaches the same subjects with different proof methods, or determines the open problems about the current subject matters. X
8 Student looks for the scientists studying on the same field as him/her, and s/he gets in touch with them for a collaborative work. X
9 Student knows enough foreign language to do a collaborative work with the scientists studying on the same field as him/her abroad.
