Guidelines for the Research Training, see https://koppa.jyu.fi/en/courses/216523/instructions

Research training report is submitted in https://koppa.jyu.fi/en/courses/216523. Please note that enrollment for the course in Korppi is required.

Contents:Research training is a supervised experimental or theoretical project work that can take place outside University. Research training can be linked to Master’s thesis work and it can feature for example designing an experimental setup, programming or deriving demanding theoretical results for the thesis. It can also be a literature survey from the given topic. Research training topics can be requested from the staff of the Physics Department. Before commencing research training students need to register for this course in Korppi.
Learning outcomes:At the end of this course, students will be able to tell about research on the given topic and related physics. Students will be able to define and outline a research problem based on given assignment and information retrieved from the given topic as well as to apply their learning and knowledge of physics to solve physics problems in practice. They will be able to write a research report that gives an objective and reliable answer to the following questions: What was studied? Why it was studied? How it was studied? What are the results? What are your conclusions based on these results?
Prerequisites:Student is expected to have completed the basic and intermediate studies in Physics as well as minor studies that are relevant for the given assignment.
