Please note! Course description is confirmed for two academic years (1.8.2018-31.7.2020), 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.
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.
