Course Enrolment Limitations
The course is offered to students of any study field.
Course objectives
The goal of the seminar is to provoke students to oral presentations and discuss topics related to the life of scientists (attendance of conferences, writing papers and project applications). The focus of the seminar is on the disciplines close to the deposition of thin films and characterization of films and surfaces.
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course, the student will be able to:
present his/her work in a clear structure;
use information about scientific conferences related to plasma processing and material science for the selection of a best option to present his/her research;
write research paper with correct structure;
critically assess a quality of research papers related to plasma processing and material science and write a referee's report;
be able to formulated a simple project application (understand how to formulated project goals and objectives, methodology, time schedule, deliverables and milestones).
  • Discussion of following topics:
  • - past scientific conferences related to plasma processing and material science;
  • - student's research and the way of its presentation;
  • - structure and form of research papers;
  • - critical assessment of research papers related to plasma processing and material science;
  • - structure and form of referee's reports on research papers
  • - structure and form of project applications.
