Evaluation of grades
The module is not graded.
− Practical classes can be chosen from the catalogues listed as VM1/2 [BIO-VM1-M-7]. Practicals in other departments or research institutions in Germany or other countries, as well as Industrial Traineeships (see below), are also possible, if agreed by the coordinators of the major fields of study.
− Industrial Traineeships are performed in a company or a public institution, under the supervision of a professor engaged in this Master program. Before the industrial traineeship is started, the student has to present to the supervising professor a one-page project outline signed by himself and the supervisor of the traineeship in the company. After the traineeship, the student documents the results in a written protocol, and in an oral presentation with discussion in the presence of the supervising professor.
