Learning Outcomes (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

The aim is to get insight into current research in the area of biobased colloids and renewable nanomaterials, and application of surface sensitive methods to fiber and polymer technology. After the course the student will have deepened his/her understanding in one specific topic and learned how to use some novel surface sensitive methods in practice. The independent work prepares the student for Master's Thesis project.

Content (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Both written and experimental work is included. The amount of written and experimental work differs from project to project and is in relation to the credits earned.

Assessment Methods and Criteria (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Written and experimental work are assessed

Workload (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

To be agreed with the responsible teacher. The workload depends on the number of credits (5-10 cr): up to 135 h (5 cr) for literature review and writing a report, and up to other 135 h (additional 5 cr) for laboratory work.

Study Material (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Material supplied in the course

Substitutes for Courses (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020):
