Introduction for BEng students

Courses in information searching are offered to BEng students during the first four semesters.

Your teachers can book a librarian to take care of the teaching in your own setting.

The objective is to systematically expand your information competences. These competences are a significant tool for solving present and future challenges during your studies as well as in your work life.
