Course content

The bachelor project should be presented as an independent scientific report within a subject selected by the student. The aim of the course is to give the student an introduction to scientific reporting, including an introduction to library searches and correct use of citations, and training in scientific presentation. The student will choose a selected topic from a selection of themes representing current research at the Department of Chemistry. The course is initiated by 8-12 hours of lectures about scientific reporting and a library course. After this students will be supervised individually or in smaller groups. The project should be presented as a written report (max. 5000 words (+- 10%)). A summary of the work is presented orally to a research group. The final grade will be based mainly on the report, with adjustments given based on the quality of the oral presentation.

Learning outcome

After completing this course the student should be able to
• Identify and use appropriate chemical scientific sources
• Plan and carry out a selected theoretical project
• Present a scientific report written and orally

Learning methods and activities

The course is initiated by 8-12 hours of seminars about scientific reporting, library searches, use of citations tools etc. Following this the students will be supervised individually or in smaller groups.

Further on evaluation

Improvement of the grade requires signing up for the course on the next occasion it is held. The best grade will apply. During a retake of the course, a new subject must be chosen, and a new report made.

Failing the course or having a valid absence can result in a postponed exam in agreement with the supervisor and the department.
