Revision of academic/scientific presentation skills: the ability to plan and prepare an effective presentation on creative problem-solving activties is practised by means of case studies. In a further step, the students are trained in the professional oral presentation of scientific results obtained in their project work.

An introduction to the principles of scientific writing comprises the presentation of the different forms of scientific publications, the integration of sources and their synthesis as well as the correct application of citation rules, the organisation of scientific papers and a systematic presentation of project work on the basis of ethical criteria. The gained skills are demonstrated in form of a written documentation of their project work.

The students have a profound understanding of the process of academic/scientific writing and are capable of presenting, orally and in written form, their research and project results efficiently and methodically, and look for and integrate other works of literature in accordance with the ethical guidelines of scientific conduct.
