Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course comprises approximately 80 full-time study hours in the form of science seminars that are held once a week. The seminars focus on current research in the field of protein science. The course assumes the form of higher seminars where the students present, interpret, analyze, critically examine and actively discuss mainly their own work, but also others' leading research literature in the research field. An important aspect of the course is that the students provide feedback on each other's scientific work. The course is the first of four courses in the seminar series.

Intended learning outcomes

After completion of the course the student should be able to

  • demonstrate both broad and specialized knowledge in the overall subject area of biotechnology with emphasis on protein science
  • demonstrate the ability to present pedagogically, critically examine and discuss their own and others' scientific work in the subject of biotechnology with emphasis on research in protein science
  • demonstrate the ability to acquire knowledge of academic authorship and the international scientific publishing landscape with relevance to the scientific focus area of the course
  • demonstrate the ability to identify, discuss and reflect on ethics and sustainability aspects in the research that is discussed within the framework of the scientific focus area of the course
