COURSE DESCRIPTION 
Course objectives 
The aim of this course is to introduce students to the theoretical principles, practical work and the use of instrumental techniques and procedures relating to the process analysis. The choice of method will depend on the knowledge of the basic principles of individual method or group of methods and the understanding of their advantages and limitations. After completion of a process of learning the learner is able for independent work in instrumental analytical laboratory. 
Course enrolment requirements and entry competences required for the course 

Learning outcomes expected at the level of the course (4 to 10 learning outcomes) 
1. Adopt theoretical knowledge related to methods of instrumental analysis (spectrometry, electroanalytical, thermal methods, instrumental separation methods) and the principles of instruments. 2. Correctly interpret the adopted theoretical knowledge relating to methods of analysis instrument and principles of instruments. 3. Explain the connection between basic knowledge of analytical chemistry with application in instrument analysis. 4. Select analytical technique due to the characteristics of the analyte and the specificity of the sample. 5. Integrate acquired knowledge and apply them in problemsolving and decisionmaking in analytical practice and in process analysis. 6. Adopt theoretical knowledge related to methods of instrumental analysis ( spectrometry , electroanalytical , thermal methods , instrumental methods for separation ) and principles of instruments and apply knowledge in the experimental work. 7. Select analytical technique due to the characteristics of the analyte and the specificity of the sample. 8. Plan and install an experiment using instrumental techniques. 9. Apply basic statistical analysis of numerical data and graphed the results. 10. Independently take Lab Notes and prepare a report after completion of the analysis.
