Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

This is a course with open content which may be specific for each student separately. It is used to gain credits from, e.g. a continual participation in a group reviewing current scientific articles in the area of mechanics, a "journal club", or a participation in a summer school class on topics in mechanics given by invited speakers, or participation in other advanced lecture series not covered by already registered program courses.

Intended learning outcomes

The student will get new knowledge in specialized current topics in mechanics and / or develop the ability to critically review scientific articles in mechanics.

Literature and preparations

Specific prerequisites
