      AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

      The aim of the course is to provide students with the theoretical knowledge of the most recent techniques employed in the different steps of the analytical process and their applicability on real samples. In particular, innovative sampling techniques for the analyses of organic micropollutants in complex matrices will be addressed, also as regards to the following instrumental analysis. Overall aim of the course is to lead students to have a critical competence/capability in the choice of the possible analytical solutions, also taking into account the knowledge of the previous analytical courses.

    • TEACHING METHODS

      Attending lessons is not compulsory, even if strongly recommended. The course will alternate lectures with working groups. Group activities can be also arranged to promote active learning methodologies to solve an analytical problem.

      Slides and further educational material available on Aulaweb.

      EXAM DESCRIPTION

      Oral examination

      ASSESSMENT METHODS

      The oral examination, performed by two professors and about 40-min long, is aimed to assess the knowledge of the content of the course, reported in the detailed program in Aulaweb, also considering the activities carried out throughout the course. During the examination, the commission evaluates if the educational objectives of the course have been achieved. If not, the student is asked to study more thoroughly and/or take benefit from further explanations by teachers.
