Faculty of Science and Technology, Department of Chemistry and Bioscience
The candidate should obtain detailed knowledge of selected (one or several) instrumental analytical techniques applied in Chemical or Environmental research. The candidate should know the principles of functionality and application of important selected analytical approaches (e.g. chromatography or spectrometry, and sample preparation and data analysis) central to the candidates own research area, and document general analytical knowledge on PhD-level.
The theoretical basis of selected instrumental techniques is studied in detail. A selected technique is completely described theoretically, and established on an actual instrument, including preparative steps. This includes methodological development, calibration and verification.
Required prerequisite knowledge
According to admission requirements for PhD in Chemistry and Biosciences. Final year master students may also be accepted to the course on the conditions of the appointed supervisors approval.
Form of assessment
Pass - Fail
Course grading is pass/fail. If the submitted course report is not accepted, the candidate will be given a New deadline for re-submission of an amended Version.
