Learning Outcomes
Students during or after the successful completion of the course will: - be introduced to the study of physicochemical problems and the methodology of the Physical Chemistry -be practiced towards the development of analytic thinking -able to solve problems in and out of the classroom. Physical Chemistry is highly mathematical -able to understand the physicochemical phenomena that take place in various chemical and physical processes
General Competences
  • Apply knowledge in practice
  • Retrieve, analyse and synthesise data and information, with the use of necessary technologies
  • Work autonomously
  • Work in an interdisciplinary team
  • Respect natural environment
  • Advance free, creative and causative thinking
