5.1. Methodological overview
The course includes both theory and practice. The methodological approach design for this course is based on the immersion of the student in the topic of environmental pollution, so he/she can gain the knowledge and skills necessary in order to face projects and, in general, any work activities, including environmental considerations in both management and technical tasks.
The class and laboratory materials available for the students can be found at the subject website (Moodle platform): http://moodle2.unizar.es/add/
The programmed activities are detailed below.
