Courses specific for QDETAILSS students

Good Data, 2 ECTS (WS3)
Experiments performed in the lab generates an increasing amount of data, the quality of which needs to be controlled. This course focuses on introducing tools that can be used to evaluate data, both univariate and multivariate, as well as some tools and a framework that can be used to assess the quality of your experimental work. The course includes lectures and four computer exercises during the workshop week, and a report that should be handed in after the workshop. The course gives 2 ECTS.

This course is developed by teachers/researchers at KILU. Peter Spégel at CAS is responsible for developing and teaching the course.

ODETAILSS offers three communication courses designed to suit the demands for a PhD student in the field of chemistry.
• Communication I – poster, 1 ECTS (WS1).
You will learn how to construct a poster that will not only show your data but that will also attract attention. You will use your own data which means that you can use the produced result as a starting point for constructing your next conference poster!
