Students will be able:

  • to propose a highly sensitive and highly selective sensor for the detection of different kind of analytes in a various environments, including biological samples
  • to analyze the information obtained during the measurement with the individual chemical sensors
  • to individually solve the problems during working of different kind of chemical sensors
