Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Graduate must manage the design proposal and the proposal of reconstruction of devices for the protection of air quality, management of production and installation of such equipment as well as organizing and controlling the operation of this equipment.

Teaching methods

Experimental work in labs


The subject deals with air protection against pollution by industrial tough and gas emission, emissions from traffic and with air problems within works. Students become familiar with emission origin, ways of measuring and technical ways of emission minimalizing.
