Withdrawal: It is not allowed to withdraw from this subject after the registration deadline.


Summary

The student will engage in a laboratory-based project in the field of life sciences engineering. Student projects will emphasize acquisition of practical skills in experimentation and data analysis.

Content

Expected student activities

Students will focus on hands-on experimentation, which may be wetlab-based or computer-based, depending on the project. Students will read and discuss assigned papers from the original
scientific literature. As part of the evaluation process, students may be required to submit a written report or to give an oral presentation that summarizes and interprets their results.

Total workload: 24h/week during 14 weeks or 8 weeks full time (42h/week)

Can be done during the autumn or spring semster or in between two semesters.

Assessment methods

Continuous control

The mode of evaluation must be clearly defined and agreed between the student and the project mentor in advance.
Typically the mode of evaluation will include a written report and /or an oral presentation prepared and delivered by the student.

 

[Unless an exception is explicitly agreed between the student and the supervisor in charge,] the written report is due no later than the Friday of the first (spring) or second (autunm) week after the end of classes. [The supervisor may require an oral exam or other types of assesments depending on the project. In this case, he/she will inform the student at the beginning of the project, indicating the weighting of the different parts evaluated].

Supervision

Others Typically, the student will be matched with a secondary mentor (this will usually be a senior PhD student or a Postdoctoral Fellow)  who will take responsibility for the day-to-day supervision and training of the student.

Resources

Bibliography

Appropriate reading materials will be assigned by the student's mentor depending on the nature of the research project. The assigned reading material will usually comprise original research papers, review articles, and secondary sources (e.g., books).
