The seminar “Scientific Work for Engineers” take place every semester, once a week, and conveys content specially tailored to engineers. These topics are planning a scientific work, literature research and management as well as topic limitations, etc.
At the end of the workshop, an elaboration has to be written to expand on content and a presentation is given about the process of creating the work.
The scope of the seminar paper is limited to 8 pages and should be structured as discussed in the lecture. There is also a requirement that elements such as graphics, formulas and a table or programming code must be included and cited accordingly. The appendix should contain a project plan, a mind map for structure determination of the work and the administration of the literature.
The development process is presented in a 10-minutes presentation. The focus here is not on presenting the topic, but rather on presenting the process of creating the work: finding the topic, justification for narrowing down the subject, experience in literature research, justification of the structure, problems with the creation, etc.
After having the workshop successfully completed, students will be credited with 2/3/4 ECTS as part of Studium Generale.
