Module aim (aims)

Explanation of the most important aspects relating to the application of metrology in chemical measurements. During classes a group of two or three students will carry out an independent research project which calls for validation of the applied analytical procedure, application of an appropriate standard facilitating traceability and evaluation of uncertainty.

Pre-requisites in terms of knowledge, skills and social competences (where relevant)
