Course description and aims

This course is designed to give students specialist knowledge in their field of study as well as basicknowledge in a broader area, with a focus on research assignments that are suggested by the academic supervisor(assignments may be decided through discussions with the academic supervisor). The students will incorporate thisknowledge into their own research themes to carry out research, participate in academic discussions, and givepresentations of their findings.

Student learning outcomes

Students will acquire the following abilities
1. Professional expertise for identifying fundamental scientific and technical issues encountered in materials science and engineering.
2. Ability to independently acquire expertise in areas outside the field of materials science and engineering and connect it to practical problem solving
3. Ability to freely utilize specialist knowledge to solve problems and provide creative ideas
4. Ability to conduct research with awareness of the trends in research and development and an international grasp ofthe field
5. Ability to explain concepts logically, develop arguments, and put them in writing
