Entry requirements

A passing grade in courses comprising 105 HE credits in the two first years of the Environmental Science Programme, or the equivalent. A passing grade in the course Environmental Science B1, 30 HE credits (or equivalent) is required.

Intended learning outcomes

On completion of the course, the student should be able to:
- explain and use the most commonly used chemical and microbiological analytical techniques in environmental monitoring
- evaluate and critically review the possibilities and limitations of modern analytical techniques
- plan and carry out representative samplings and analyses of tests
- describe and analyse the principles that constitute the basis for quality assurance and accreditation of laboratories in the field of environmental analysis

Course content

The contents of the course consist of the theories behind, and practical application of, spectroscopic, chromatographic, wet-chemical, electrochemical and microbiological analytical techniques. Quality assurance procedures for chemical and biological analysis work constitute another part of the course. The importance of the sampling technique for the reliability of the analysis results is also an important part of the contents.

Teaching and working methods

This course utilises work in tutorial group, lectures, seminars, workshops, laboratory sessions and field studies. Additional resource sessions may be organised in the course. If necessary, the course may be taught in English.The students should also study independently.

Examination

The course is examined through individual oral presentations, individual written work, written work carried out in groups, oral group presentations and public discussion on another student's work. A passing grade in the course also requires active participation in tutorial group meetings, seminars, laboratory work and other practical parts.

If special circumstances prevail, and if it is possible with consideration of the nature of the compulsory component, the examiner may decide to replace the compulsory component with another equivalent component.

If the LiU coordinator for students with disabilities has granted a student the right to an adapted examination for a written examination in an examination hall, the student has the right to it.

If the coordinator has recommended for the student an adapted examination or alternative form of examination, the examiner may grant this if the examiner assesses that it is possible, based on consideration of the course objectives.

An examiner may also decide that an adapted examination or alternative form of examination if the examiner assessed that special circumstances prevail, and the examiner assesses that it is possible while maintaining the objectives of the course.
