Intended learning outcomes

The course is designed to give students further experience to an chemist’s approach to analyze a task, solving problems, organizing the required activities to complete the task and working in groups. This is a practical course in which students work in groups. The course will end with written and oral presentations of the groups accomplishments. By the end of the course, students will be able to:

  • plan and experimentally execute a project in chemistry
  • understand and evaluate experimentally determined data through critical thinking of scientific literature and available experimental data
  • analyze and structuring problems
  • plan a project after receiving a problem statement and to generate project and time plans
  • take initiative and find creative solutions to problem
  • make oral and written presentations of project work in english.

    Course content

    The project course involves a projekt based on the fundamental working metods in chemistry; syntesis, separation and analysis. The project can be taken from different areas in chemistry

    Teaching and working methods

    The project work is performed in groups of 3-4 students and is organized in two parts. First, a plan is worked out and designed for the project with literature research. The second part involves laboartory work, documentation and evaluation. During the project the students shall work independently with a supervisor as a discussion partner to support the project. Project work should be documented during the work, and at the end presented in the form of a presentation and a written report written in english. Both the presentation and the report must be passed.
