Main Modules (12 credits) involve studies on current scientific projects, mostly as part of ongoing master or PhD projects. They take place as block courses over four weeks. Students typically work in groups of two participants guided by a senior scientist or PhD student. The results are summarised and discussed in a report fulfilling scientific level requirements. In the accompanying seminar, recent scientific studies in international journals are presented by the students. Every student will have to finish two Main Modules.
Learning targets: The students can carry out actual scientific projects (under guidance). They know modern analytical techniques. They know and understand recent scientific literature. They can write scientific protocols, present their results and discuss them in the public.
