Intended learning outcomes

The course shall exemplify and present different fields and areas in Chemical Analysis Engineering. By analyzing an analytical problem coupled to the presented fields, students working in groups will get in-depth knowledge which they will present in written and oral form. After the course, students will:

  • be able to organize and present information
  • be able to evaluate oral communication
  • be able to describe the different areas of Chemical Analysis Engineering, together with concrete industrial examples
  • be able to produce an in-depth technical report for an analytical problem, building upon their knowledge of report writing and presentation skills
  • describe and use basic ethical theories, principles and concepts to analyze ethical problems in natural sciences and technology.
  • explain the importance of professional responsibility.

Course content

An overview and in-depth view of different areas of analytical chemistry will be presented for both small and large companies. Forensic analyses. Environmental analyses. Pharmaceutical analyses. Medical applications. Process analyses. Oral and written presentation skills. Ethical aspects in natural science and technology.

Teaching and working methods

The course will illustrate industrial applications of Chemical Analysis Engineering. Examples will be included in forensic studies and environmental science.. The course consists of lectures, seminars and project work.
The course runs the entire autumn semester, and a literature project will be mixed with lectures, presentations of companies and exercises in communication and presentation techniques and lectures and seminars in ethics. Both individual and groupwise oral presentation is included in the course.
