Courses and meetings

There are three basic categories of course activities within the DPMS:

  • (ME) acquiring scientific tools: courses on imaging, analytical and modeling techniques.
  • (SB) acquiring a broad scientific background: conferences on scientific topics of general interest in Mineral Sciences.
  • (SK) acquiring soft skills: oral and poster presentations given by the doctoral students, conferences and workshops on soft skills.
