Discussions are led by students and allow you to discuss reading assignments in
detail and you will be evaluated on your participation
Oral presentation and term papers should be given on the same topic, related to
advanced polymer materials, NOT RELATED to your research area or any
research project in the group.
Text: there is no single book covering the material included in this course.
Each lecturer will provide recommended reading.
