Course specification
Course titleEnvironmental Analysis
Study programme
Lecturer (for classes)
Lecturer/Associate (for practice)
Lecturer/Associate (for OTC)
    ConditionPrerequisite for enrolling the course is successful completion of Organic Chemistry and Analytical Chemistry.Облик условљености
    The goalThe overall goal of the course is to provide students with the theoretical and practical knowledge regarding the analysis of environmental samples. After completing the course students should understand the problems related to the analysis of complex samples, they should be able to perform sampling, to select and apply appropriate method of chemical analysis, and to process and interpret the results of the analysis.
    The outcomeThe students should gain theoretical and practical knowledge about analysis of the environmental samples; they should develop the capacity to recognize the analytical problem and to select the appropriate method for its solution; they should master the techniques of sampling, sample preparation and chemical analysis; through written and oral seminar presentation they should improve the communication skills.
