3. Course contents *

The students will get a theoretical background about the planning and the organization of a project. There are classes on research skills and reporting (oral and written report). Then they have to investigate a technical-scientific problem in groups of 4 to 5 students, in which the following items are treated: organization and preparation of the project, literary study and practical implementation. As a written report, they make a poster that meets the scientific standards in terms of content and form, which includes the following elements: problem definition, research method, data collection and data processing, results and discussion, conclusions and references. In addition, students are required to make an enthusiastic knowledge clip with a minimum duration of one minute and a duration of maximum two minutes. The students present their results orally to fellow students and professors and are able to answer questions.
