Knowledge and understanding -
At the end of the course the students will have to know and understand various theoretical concepts concerning the fundamental chemical processes governing environmental pollution, both at the qualitative and at the quantitative level.
The acquired expertise will comprise:
1) familiarity with the correct scientific terminology;
2) knowledge of the physicochemical properties of water, soil, and organic and inorganic pollutants;
3) a theoretical background of analytical techniques to determine the above mentioned properties;
4) theoretical insight of the main remediation techniques.
Applying knowledge and understanding-
The student will be able to apply the acquired theoretical knowledge in the day to day practice in the fields of environmental safety and monitoring.
The students will have to be able to:
a) memorize and understand a large number of fundamental concepts (learning skills);
b) correlate these concepts together (making judgements);
c) use them as theoretical background to tackle chemical and environmental topics not necessarily handled during the course, but connected with it;
d) explain them in an organize way using a proper scientific language.
