scientific centres: large well-stocked libraries and state-of-art
scientific laboratories and apparatus (electron microscopes, mass
spectrometers, nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers, etc..)

to use the university’s research facilities during practicals and for
the preparation of their graduation theses.
