Entry requirements
Skills to be acquired in this module
Students acquire pratical skills in complex instrumental methods of Physical Chemistry and apply them for solving a scientific problem. They learn the handling as well as presentation of research results. They use original literature, scripts and hand books and operational procedures to prepare and conduct complex experiments.
Module contents
Master of Science
Students select 3 method courses out of the catalogue from physical chemistry. The courses should be related to the topic and requirements of the research exercise. Exceptions are possible after consultation with the student advisors of this module (Al-Shamery, Wittstock). Each method course comprises self-study, class-room instruction, a preset experiment and data evaluation.
Students present the result of own literature research in a seminar talk. Students solve a research exercise in which they extend their capabilities in a selected area beyond the method courses.

PhD program Interface Science
Students may select method courses for their further qualification (1-2 KP each) and attend a colloquium (30 min pass/fail) at the end of the method course. PhD students can only select method courses that have not beeen part of their MSc. curriculum.

Themen der Methodenkurse
Die Themen und Zeitpunkte der Methodenkurse werden semesterweise festgelegt und per Aushang und Stud.IP bekanntgemacht. Typischerweise finden die Kurse im jährlichen Zyklus statt. Bei Bedarf ist auch ein halbjähriger Rythmus möglich.
