MarMic → MarMic Year I

Soft Skills Training

Additional to the excellent scientific an technical training soft skills courses are offered to help students learn skills that are just as important for their future careers in science and industry. These include the ability to communicate with peers, supervisors, and employees, the ability to work in a team, the ability to manage time well and work effectively, and the ability to coordinate one’s personal and professional life. MarMic has therefore developed a unique course set of soft skills for its students together with two external professional trainers.

Module 3: Moderation and Presentation

Module 4: Interpersonal qualities
