Fundamentals of chemistry and physic.

Development of the course

The course will consist of assisted exercitation. The documents used during esercitations, accompanied by bibliography, will be available to students.

Learning outcomes

The course will enable students to understand the basic knowledge about:
- procedure for implementing monitoring techniques to specific cases
-  sampling in both air and water matrices
- validation of data within Continuous emission monitoring systems (CEMS)

Ability to apply the knowledge:
The student will also gain the following professionalising skills:
- apply national and international emission surveillance systems
- analyze and evaluate data from different experiments and CEMS programs, and from these results be able to describe and judge the status of the plant.

Soft skills:
The design exercitation, individual and team, helps to improve both the degree of independence of judgment in general of students, and their ability to communicate that stems also from the teamwork, and their ability to learn independently and to draw conclusions.


Exercises (2 CFU, 16 hours):
Lab exercises:
Basic design of CEMS, as low as real cases of industrial plants subject to Integrated Pollution Prevention Control (IPPC).
At the end of the exercises, the student will have to deliver a report on the designing activities carried out, presenting for the case study, objective, relevant regulations, the plant description, proposed solutions, calculations to be executed and how to evaluate/interpret the results themselves.
Field exercises:
A one-day field trip will be organized, and dedicated to visit an industrial plant and its system of emission monitoring in the different environmental matrices.

Development of the examination

Methods for assessing learning outcomes:
The evaluation is through written and oral tests. In the written exam, students must approach the basic design of an environmental monitoring system with the aid of the technologies and methods used in the exercitations. In the oral exam the student is asked to discuss his/her written paper.

Criteria for assessing learning outcomes:
In the exam tests, the student must demonstrate the ability to use autonomously and correctly the key investigation technologies and strategies for environmental monitoring used during exercitations.

Criteria for measuring learning outcomes:
In the examination tests is evaluated, the autonomous capacity of the student to set up and solve the problems that are placed to her/him. It also evaluated the ability to properly and appropriately use technologies and strategies of environmental monitoring.

Criteria for conferring final mark:The certification of the suitability of the knowledges  is assigned to students  who demonstrate to be able to solve problems that are set and sufficient knowledge of technologies and strategies of environmental monitoring.
