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). Students will also receive information on the use of databases for scientific literature. 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, literature 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. The students present their results orally to fellow students and professors and are able to answer questions.
