    The goalThe aim of this course is to introduce students to contemporary theoretical and practical knowledge in the field of electrocatalysis. The course includes an independent seminar work.
    The outcomeAfter successful completion of the course students are: (i) acquire the ability to analyze complex problems connected to electrocatalytic reactions, (ii) mastered electrochemical methods and techniques in the study of electrocatalysis, (iii) acquire communication and social skills needed to work in the engineering team, (iv) acquire communication skills for clear formulation and presentation of the task, possible solutions and performances.
    Contents of lecturesThe course introduces students to the electrocatalysis, the study of surface adsorption interactions of adsorbed species on the surface, as well as methods and techniques for the testing of electrocatalytic reactions. Selected practical examples are analyzed in order to connect theoretical knowledge with practical problems.
