Knowing: recognizes paper and paper board converting products, defines the most important properties of those, understand the basics of the factors affecting quality and basics of the processes. The student recognises different printing processes and products printed with each method, defines the most important requirements of the each printing method for the printing substrate.
Doing: manages the assigned tasks under supervision/assisted.
Being: can give and receive feedback, can work in a group, takes responsibility for his/her own work.
Knowing: structures relations between field-related phenomena and concepts, applies knowledge on the tasks. Explains different kind of paper converting products and their manufacturing processes, compares the different products and processes. Explains the printing processes and problems, compares the different printing processes and products. Structures things in relation to one another.
Doing: applies substance matter learnt in previous studies, makes a plan/plans before carrying out tasks, limits tasks/problems to have an appropriate scope, solves problems.
Being: can give and receive feedback actively and constructively, can cooperate responsibly and is ready to develop his/her interaction skills.
Recognizes and follows the important courses of action in the field.
Takes responsibility and commits to the group activities in addition to his/her own work.
Knowing: Analyses how different types of manufacturing processes affect the product quality, costs and environment, describes with arguments the optimal process for manufacturing different paper converting products, analyses printing processes and problems.
Doing: can search for diverse courses of action and solution alternatives, justify his/her choices and try new courses of action, assesses diverse solution alternatives, combines solution alternatives creatively or creates new ones.
Being: can cooperate responsibly, flexibly and constructively, develops his/her own and the group's interaction, works responsibly and in a committed manner considering the community and field requirements and needs.
