Knowing: recognizes different paper board and paper grades, defines the most important properties of those, understand the basics of the factors affecting quality.
Acting: manages the assigned tasks under supervision/assisted, can make slides of fibers, recognizes fiber and pulp types, manages product analysis and the measurements based on that for different paper board and paper grades, can make tables and figures of results and can make some conclusions based on those.
Being: can give and receive feedback, can work in a group, takes responsibility for his/her own work.
Knowing: Explains the relations of paper board and paper properties, manufacturing processes and raw materials, compares different grades, structures things in relation to one another.
Acting: manages the assigned task quite independently, helps the others, makes a plan/plans before carrying out tasks.
Being: can give and receive feedback actively and constructively, 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: understands the entity of paper board and paper quality.
Acting: 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.

Prerequisites: Either the course "Orientation to Forest Industry and Finnish Society" or "Biotuote- ja prosessitekniikan perusteet" or knowledge of paper making raw materials, basic processes and properties achieved in some other way.
There are three laboratory works and those will be done as pair work and in the two-three persons groups. Two wider work, paper board and paper testing and the effect of refining will take place 5-6 weeks. The third work will take place one laboratory session. In the end of the course there will be sessions where reporting is guided. wk 36: Implementation plan, safety, plan, wk 37 - 41, 43 – 48: Refining and testing of pulp, fiber analysis, proportioning pulps and fillers, making paper sheet, testing paper properties, wk 49 – 50 Interpretation of the results and reporting.
