Опис: During the internship on the subject of MKR, each student must obtain specific scientific results from the chosen scientific problem, which will be reflected in the master's qualification thesis.
Assessment methods and criteria: The current monitoring of the student's work during practice by the educational institution is carried out on the basis of entries in the "Tasks and results of practice" form and entries in the workbook. This control is carried out by the practice manager from the enterprise, who systematically checks the performance of production and educational tasks by the student-intern, gives him appropriate assignments and makes comments. The company controls the student's compliance with the rules of the internal procedure and the performance of the individual task. The company informs the management of the educational institution about gross violations of the rules of the internal procedure by the student. The supervision of practice by the university is carried out by a teacher of the department appointed as the head of practice, who has the right to visit enterprises and check the performance of production and educational tasks by each student-intern.
Критерії оцінювання результатів навчання: After the end of the internship, the student prepares and submits a report to the department. 2-3 days are allocated at the end of the internship to summarize the results of the work done by the student during the internship and prepare the report. The student's report on practice must comply with the rules for the design of scientific reports in compliance with the EKSD, state standards, etc. The materials of the report must correspond to the topic of the master's qualification thesis. The report briefly and concretely describes the work personally performed by the student, it is not allowed to copy literally the materials of the practice bases, as well as to cite literary sources without references. The structure and content of the practice report must correspond to all stages of scientific research and its logical sequence.
