Please note! Course description is confirmed for two academic years, which means that in general, e.g. Learning outcomes, assessment methods and key content stays unchanged. However, via course syllabus, it is possible to specify or change the course execution in each realization of the course, such as how the contact sessions are organized, assessment methods weighted or materials used.
This course exposes students to state-of-the-art developments in some specific engineering materials, or processes related to engineering materials, and examines the multicultural technological, societal, and historical context in which materials research and development occur.
During the course, the students will learn to locate and read scientific literature in their field, to critically evaluate it, they will collaborate and discuss with colleagues whose perspectives are rooted in other languages and cultures, and they will become familiar with the format and style of scientific literature and conference presentations.

CONTENT, ASSESSMENT AND WORKLOAD
The course consists of minimal lecturing, independent reading on a topic chosen by each student, online collaboration, and a student-led seminar where students present a paper they wrote about their topic.
Assessment Methods and Criteria
The paper written, the verbal presentation, and the peer review are assessed separately. For doctoral students, more weight is given to the assessment of the peer review given to other students.
