Branch detail

Chemistry and Technology of Environmental Protection


Original title in Czech: Chemie a technologie ochrany životního prostředí
Abbreviation: BKCO_CHTOZP
Specialisation: -
Length of Study: 3 years
Programme: Chemistry and Chemical Technologies
Faculty: Faculty of Chemistry
Academic year: 2017/2018
Accredited from: 20.7.2005
Accredited until: 31.8.2019
Profile of the branch:
The aim of the study is to provide general education in technical chemistry with a focus on environmental issues. Graduates may find their jobs in all branches of industry in positions of environmentalists, water managers, experts for air protection and waste management, at all levels of state and local governments in the control bodies for the protection of the environment, in the laboratories of chemistry and biology of the environment and in many emerging research and educational institutions aimed at protection of the environment. In addition, graduates are equipped with the necessary knowledge and prerequisites for further study in master degree study programs of the Faculty of Chemical, as well as other courses of chemical or chemical-technological focus.
Key learning outcomes:
Graduates will gain the necessary theoretical knowledge and practical skills in the field of general, inorganic, organic, physical and analytical chemistry as well as in chemical engineering, based on a thorough knowledge of other disciplines of natural science (mathematics, physics, biology, toxicology). The general base is then developed towards environmental protection in areas of environmentally friendly chemical technologies, advanced technologies for the treatment of drinking water and waste water, renewable energy, responsible waste management with an emphasis on recycling, constantly taking into account the principles of sustainable development. An essential accessory is a language training (English) and other skills gained in elective courses in humanities and technical nature, such as management and quality control, project preparation and management, pedagogy and psychology, philosophy and fundamentals of ethics, legal propaedeutic. Graduate also can make use of contemporary information technologies in chemical practice (calculations, statistical and graphical data processing, orientation in the factual and full-text databases, means of electronic communication).
Occupational profiles of graduates with examples:
Bachelor degree course "Chemistry and Technology of Environmental Protection" is focused on chemistry and technology of environmental compartments. The practical orientation of the course allows both successful finding of jobs and the smooth continuation of studies in the same field in two-year Master program, or through lifelong education of practitioners. The assembly of courses in the first two years covers general subjects of chemical specialization and appropriate laboratory exercises. Specialization is realized in courses such as Environmental Chemistry, Chemistry of atmosphere, Hydrochemistry and Hydrobiology. The third year, focused on deepening knowledge of specialized subjects and on practical training, is completed by bachelor thesis. Graduates may successfully use acquired theoretical knowledge and practical skills in a dynamic growing industry of environmental protection, at all levels of state and local governments and in a range of laboratories focused on the chemistry of the environment in the areas of surveillance, research, scientific and academic institutions.
Branch supervisor: prof. RNDr. Milada Vávrová, CSc.
