Please note! Course description is confirmed for two academic years (1.8.2018-31.7.2020), which means that in general, e.g. Learning outcomes, assessment methods and key content stays unchanged. However, via course syllabus, it is possible to specify or change the course execution in each realization of the course, such as how the contact sessions are organized, assessment methods weighted or materials used.


After completing the course, a student will 

-gain a deepened understanding of the chemistry of elements

-familiarise oneself with basic concepts in systematic inorganic materials design

-perform hands-on experience with laboratory instruments

-demonstrate advanced data interpretation and reporting
