In this case, the final mark of the course, FM, is calculated as:
FM = 0.75 x (EM) + 0.25 x (PM)
where EM is the mark of the written exam and PM is the practicals mark.
If the exam mark is less than 5/10, the final mark of the course will be the one of the written exam.
The main objective of this course is to acquire applied knowledge about environmental technologies and sustainability. Industrial and domestic activities generate pollution and have to meet the necessary tools for its prevention and control.
The Environmental Technology course is divided into three thematic units:
Unit 1. Characterization and treatment of contaminated water.
Unit 2. Pollutants and air pollution control.
Unit 3. Management of municipal and industrial solid waste.
Evaluation and relation of the physicochemical parameters that characterize the degree of contamination of a residual water.
Determination of the Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD)
Determination of ammonia concentration
Determination of nitrite concentration
