General Prerequisites
Learning Outcomes
During the lectures, several tests required in order to confirm the level of understanding. Students get a topic of their interest and are working on it, through essays and present them (power point) to the audience. At the end of the course, students present their topic in a global way(synthesis, characterisation, applications etc.) Experimental training in laboratory is also achieved.
