Guided by the requirements of the standard plan, by the content of the catalog of elective courses and the academic calendar, students determine an individual trajectory for each academic year. The logic of making an individual plan determines the choice of elective courses, teachers, scientific supervisor, topics of course works and diploma papers. Advisers provide methodological assistance to students in the formation of an individual trajectory. The trajectory of preparation of bachelors is based on the vertical principle of continuity of disciplines, the curriculum of educational trajectories is built taking into account the distribution into semesters; division into compulsory and elective components; general education, basic, majors.

The curriculum pays adequate attention and time to the professional component, natural sciences and mathematics, as well as the disciplines of the humanitarian and socio-economic block.

Responsibility for the work of the adviser service lies with the head of the Registration Office and the heads of departments.

One of the fundamental educational documents is a working curriculum, which is formed on the basis of individual students' plans and regulates the development of the educational program.

The study of any discipline, regardless of its academic status, ends with an exam (term paper (project)) and the award of credits, the minimum amount of which for the entire training period is 240 ECTS credits. Of these, 66 credits are allotted to the disciplines of the humanitarian and socio-economic bloc, and 25 credits to the natural sciences and mathematics.

The working curriculum consists of such units as “Natural Sciences and Mathematics”, “Special and General Professional Disciplines”, which includes Engineering Disciplines and Engineering Design, and “Humanitarian and Socio-Economic Sciences”.
