Introduction to Scientific Working

Course Number 705009 | Wintersemester 2020/21


Composition of lecture, discussion, independent student work and oral presentations based on existing papers and presentations of specific topics of the institute. Analysis of structure of scientific papers and preparation of structure and of sections of a paper. Planning and evaluation of oral presentations.

We want to include you in our research activities. Therefore, we designed our Bachelor@IAIK program to prepare and accompany you from start to end during an interesting research project. Our Bachelor@IAIK program consists of the three classes ISW (Introduction to Scientific Working), the Bachelor Project, and the Bachelor Thesis.
Of course, you can also take these classes independently, but we’d be happy to welcome you in our Bachelor@IAIK program spanning multiple, ideally all three, of these classes.
