Teaching language

Suitable for English-speaking students

Objectives

Students may choose to attend with approval a curricular unit of 6 ECTS in Astronomy, Biology, Physics, Geology, Mathematics or Chemistry within the scope of doctoral programs or advanced training courses, as long as deemed appropriate by the Doctoral Program Scientific Committee,
 or maybe replaced

 by a research work or scientific research internship approved by the Scientific Committee of the Doctoral Program. Research work or internship work can be presented in one of four formats:

  1. theoretical or empirical research work in the areas of astronomy, biology, physics, geology, mathematics or chemistry.
  2. theoretical or empirical scientific article in the areas of astronomy, biology, physics, geology, mathematics or chemistry.
  3. s work is based only on document analysis on the subject of one of the areas: Astronomy, Biology, Physics, Geology, Mathematics or Chemistry.
  4. work with deep literature review and always with a section referring to national and international research on the subject of one of the areas: Astronomy, Biology, Physics, Geology, Mathematics or Chemistry.

Learning outcomes and competences

Develop competencies of critical thinking and problem-solving.

Know how to collect, analyze and interpret the results of a scientific investigation.

Know the structure of articles in the scientific area of the are of the Ph.D

Working method

Presencial

Pre-requirements (prior knowledge) and co-requirements (common knowledge)

Basic scientific knowledge at the graduate level in a specific area of the Ph.D. program.

Program

The syllabus should be coherent with the student’s chosen theme and accepted by the tutor, and by the Scientific Commission of the PH.D. Program.

Mandatory literature

Bucchi Massimiano, 1970- 340; Routledge handbook of public communication of science and technology. ISBN: 9780415834612

Teaching methods and learning activities

Analysis of scientific papers and other relevant reading; also, if necessary, data gathering and analysis. Students are encouraged to present their papers in specialized publications and/or conferences. T

The evaluation of the student’s work is carried out by a jury, consisting of the tutor, eventually a co­tutor and another FCUP teacher or researcher.
