Annotation -
The methods used for water and wastewater analysis in laboratory are discussed in this course. The choice of methods is based on routine analytical practice. Students become acquainted with steps af analytical procedures, possible interferences, methods of sample pre-treatment, calculations and interpretation of results. Emphasis is also placed on understanding and practicing basic calculations used in solution preparation, data evaluation and results processing.

Aim of the course -

Students will know the determination methodology of common components of drinking, surface and sewage water and they will know the principles of all determinations. Students will know the procedure of each hydroanalytic determination and they will be able to calculate the results from the measured values, including the correct interpretation of the obtained results.

Course completion requirements -

The course ends with a classified credit. The classification is based on the evaluation of the final test, which takes 90 minutes to write and no aids such as scripts, notes, tablet, notebook, etc. are allowed; only writing materials and a calculator are allowed. A maximum of 100 points can be obtained in the test, 70 for correctly answered questions and 30 for correctly calculated examples. The grading is based on the usual grading scale: 91-100 points A, 81-90 points B, 71-80 points C, 61-70 points D, 51-60 points E, 50 points or less F. There is one regular test date and two make-up dates, which can also be used to correct the grade. If you wish to make up a grade, you must inform the instructor to enter the grade of F in SIS, as this is the only way the system will allow you to register for the make-up term.
