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.

5.2. Learning tasks

 

  1. Theory lectures (TP1): 30 hours (on-site activity)
  2. Exercises and case studies sessions (TP2): 15 hours (on-site activity). Exercises and case studies will be done in order to complement theoretical sessions.
  3. Laboratory sessions (TP3): 10 hours (on-site activity).
  4. Visits to facilities related to water and air treatment and quality control (TP4): 5 hours (on-side activity).
  5. Tutored case studies (TP6): 30 hours (non on-site activity). Guidance, monitoring and evaluation of guided work.
  6. Evaluation (TP8): 6 hours (on-site activity).
  7. Study (TP7): 54 hours (non on-site activity).
  8. Tutorials.
