Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

To improve students' knowledge acquired in previous studies in the field of waste management. Emphasis is placed on learning the issues of waste management in all its range, including environmental and economic impacts.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations


The subject covers various methods of material and energy waste recovery and also methods of their disposal/removal. The individual themes are, in agreement with the supervisor, developed in detail by the specific focus of doctoral dissertation.
