Learning outcomes of the course :  
To provide the student with an introduction to the principles of instrumental analysis (electrochemistry, molecular and atomic spectrometry) with special attention to their strengths and performances. After completing the course the student is expected to - demonstrate a good knowledge of the principles of quantitative electrochemical and spectrophotometric (molecular and atomic) methods of analysis; - develop a practical know-how in electrochemistry and spectrophotometry (molecular and atomic); - evaluate the experimental data; - understand the theorical and practical aspects of near infrared spectrometry and ICP-MS
