The curriculum of the IMPRS tries to foster the abilities of the students to work on scientific problems independently. The measures to achieve this goal combine basic courses, (like for example Quantum Chemistry), advanced courses (e.g. EPR Spectroscopy but also case studies, or excursions), progress meetings, courses on additional skills, research seminars and the participation in conferences and workshops. Furthermore practical exercises on state-of-the-art lab experiments and computer codes are combined with introductory tutorials.
Rules of Good Scientific Practice
We expect our students to follow and comply with the 'Rules of Good Scientific Practice' that can also be found, next to other useful information, on the website of the Max Planck Society.
