Research Module 1

Through this module, the students will get hands-on experience in current research through the development of a mini project in a laboratory of their choice, putting into practice the theoretical knowledge acquired during other courses in the context of the MSc’s programme. The students learn to design and carry out experiments and evaluate the results as preparation for their masteŕs thesis. During this time, they will become full members of the research group and participate in all group activities, e.g. lab meetings.

Students will

  • learn and apply scientific methodology and acquire experience in experimental design and interpretation, while familiarizing themselves with work in a research laboratory.

  • be able to independently develop experimental protocols based on scientific literature, to implement experiments in practice and to critically analyse the results.

  • be able to document and present their results.

  • exercise their communication skills by preparing and presenting a scientific poster of their results.
