Language of teaching Czech
Extent of teaching 2P+1L
Students will learn the basic areas of applied chemistry in biomedical engineering and technology. At the same time, this course will introduce other chemical disciplines. During laboratory exercises, students should acquire basic laboratory techniques used in chemical laboratories focused primarily on the analysis of substances and materials. Laboratory exercises are preceded by exercises focused on practical calculations for laboratory practice.
Study targets
Mastering of chemical knowledge. Mastering of basic chemistry overview, conformation of atoms and its relations with particular characteristics of elements, usage in practice, physical chemistry. To get knowledge and practical skills in analytical chemistry. Important part is mastering of common calculation process in laboratory praktice as well as in theoretical researches.

Conditions of credit:
Obligatory and active attendance at all tutorials. Absences are acceptable for serious reasons only and must be apologized and recompensed. Student has to come in time. For each lab session working out a report in corresponding quality. Successful completion of credit test.

The exam consists of a written test and an oral exam. Answers to questions are scored according to difficulty. The test is followed by oral testing. The overall evaluation of the exam is based on the valid classification scale. If the result of any part is rated F, the test result is automatically F.
