Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course consists of a number of seminars given by the researchers at the Department of Chemistry, CBH, KTH, and invited lecturers. The seminar topics are closely related to the actual field of the particular lecturer, yet the seminars are aimed at getting a deeper insight but also a wider overview of the specific research area. Jointly, the seminars provide a patchwork that provide a representative view over the modern chemistry, its research forefront, its scientific methodology, and societal relevance.

Intended learning outcomes

After completion of the course the doctoral student should have the ability to:

  • demonstrate for the level of the course adequate acquired knowledge within the field of chemistry.
  • succinctly present, critically evaluate, and discuss in depth scientific results in chemistry.
  • Identify, discuss, and reflect upon selected aspects of sustainability and scientific ethics coupled to the research presented within the framework of the course.

Course disposition

The course consists of a seminar series with connected literature assignments.
