Building the Foundation: Core Undergraduate Courses 



Building the Foundation: Core Undergraduate Courses 

The first years of undergraduate education are critical in any scientific journey. As they lay the groundwork for further specialization, this is when students are exposed to the fields’ core principles and key concepts. 

These foundational subjects serve as the building’s strong base and durable walls: they instill the necessary knowledge, analytical skills, and critical thinking that enable a student to be successful in the field and in-depth specialization later. However, this is still a starting point. 

While foundational subjects must lay the path to further specialization, the undergraduate’s general direction must allow for broader understanding and open the doors to additional learning. 

Cornerstone: Natural Sciences 

Natural science offers basic concepts that allow for a more in-depth understanding of the natural world. Observation and experimentation prepare a student for a later in-depth study of natural science. 

First, physics explains basic principles underlining matter, energy, and spacetime. Physics courses teach students the basics of gravity, motion, forces, and other key factors that determine our universe and affect every other field. 

More importantly, physics is built around logic and problem-solving and promotes skills greatly valued in any field. 

Secondly, chemistry is based on knowledge about substances, their interactions, and their properties. Chemistry courses help students understand simple and complex chemical reactions, the basic properties of elements and substances, and chemical rules. Of course, this subject promotes critical thinking, data analysis, and observation and is highly beneficial for multiple careers. 

Thirdly, biology explores the field of life and death within living organisms. Biology courses make students understand evolution, genetics, the correlation between different living organisms, and many other vital issues. Moreover, through labs and researches, students learn to analyze and critically evaluate information, observe it, and understand the diversification of life.

The Power of Numbers: Mathematics 

Math is the language that science and engineering speak. It is a tool that provides a mathematical approach to reasoning, solving, and explaining natural phenomena logically. Our mathematics courses enable students to develop the ability to formulate real-world problems. 

Calculus is a core math tool that allows students to understand change and solve problems related to the rate of change. Linear algebra allows students to grasp the concepts of matrices and vectors, aiding in solving complex mathematical models and scientific problems. 

Statistics allows students to formulate the data analysis methodologies, illustrate correct inferences, and measure uncertainty. It equips the student with the knowledge of the sampling technique, hypothesis testing, and data interpretation, among others. 

Beyond the Basics: Humanities and Social Sciences 

Humanities and social science allow students to learn about their endeavors in history, literature, philosophy on the humanities side, and sociology and psychology on the social sciences side. Humanities enable students to learn through cultural achievements and develop cultural analysis and critical thinking capabilities.

Social science allows students to explore human behavior, social institutions, and structures. It empowers students to become critical thinkers as they comprehend the world around them. 


The Lifelong Journey Core undergraduate Techgaming course is a springboard for a lifelong process of learning and intellectual development. Behind this, students put on knowledge, skills, and critical thinking ability in their transformation, synthesis, and innovation. 

In the future, regardless of how the student intends to develop further – senior study or career formation – in any case, they will have to adapt and develop.
