In the course students will lean to prepare different types of scientific documents with standard structural elements of different formats and with different tools for scientific typesetting, plotting and producing
graphics. Students will be enabled to carry out a literature research on a topic in materials research independently, as well as to summarise their findings in a written report, using adequate citing techniques and avoiding plagiarism. At the end of the semester students will submit their written report on their literature research and present their findings in a short oral presentation.
