Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

To be familiar with environmental issues in general terms. To distinguish the different approaches to estimate and find the best solutions for specific environmental issues. Students will be able to provide informations for work with practice, demonstrate and evaluate a general overview of the issue. Comparing the different approaches and confrontation with practice. Prove to show results and solve problems with high quality of work and all by itself. Demonstrate communication skills (speaking and active writing), to handle technical terminology.
