Principal Module Aims are:
- To promote an appreciation for the wider context of diamond science and technology (DST): the applications, the alternative materials, and the competitor technologies. This includes an opportunity to explore and reflect on the ethical issues of research and application of new technology.
- To expose students to seminars from world-leaders in both academic and industrial DST and related fields.
- To ensure students engage with the information from these seminars - both individually and collectively - and use it to put their coursework into a wider context.
- To encourage collation and critical analysis of a body of scientific work and practice in presenting this information to a variety of audiences.
On completion of this module, the student should:
- Have a good appreciation of the wider context of their chosen research topic.
- Have gained practical experience of collating complex scientific information and recording it in a form that is useful to them or their peers for future reference.
- Have gained practical experience of presenting complex scientific ideas to different audiences: in particular their peers and other DST specialist, the wider scientific community and interested members of the general public.
