There are two kinds of studies which differ in the degrees and knowledge levels:

Academic studies involve more theoretical work - such as projects, research and development.
  • Professional studies, which aim at enabling students to apply the knowledge and skills needed to join the process of work (these programmes are more practice-orientated, focused on various techniques or particular professions). Professional studies are more focused on solving practical problems - such as production and maintenance.
