Some advice about the management of a supervised experimental project

During a course unit, you have been entrusted with an experimental project. Why?


  • So that you deal with a scientific problem, related to a research project or an industrial application
  • So that you face a situation that involves using your prior knowledge and strengthening your experimental skills
  • So that you experience realistic conditions with defined material and human resources and deadlines to meet
  • So that you get prepared to handle larger projects.

WHAT ARE THE MAIN STEPS THAT YOU HAVE TO DEVELOP?

Understand the scientific and technological issues and express a question.
Design an approach to answer the question.
Perform the experiments, obtain results and interpret them.
Highlight your study and communicate the relevant results.
