Synopsis:

Abstract:

The aim of this subject is to introduce students to the basics of scientific work in the form of measurements, data analysis and writing of reports. Simple case studies of materials science are designed to show students the right way of presenting the outputs of their work. The subject is focused on correct data analysis and logical structure of the reports. After completing the subject, the student should be able to individually design, execute and evaluate experiments.
