Course Aims
Environmental applications of nanotechnology have become very important recently. In this frame, latest developments related to nanotechnology, environmentally friendly manufacturing procedures, possible effects on human and environment and scientific researches and regulations that should be done in the future related to nanotechnology will be mentioned. As a result, development of scientific infrastructure on environmental nanotechnology which is sensitive to human and environment is aimed with this course.
Course Goals
1. Understanding the environmental impact of nanotechnology
2. Environmentally friendly methods for nanoparticle synthesis
3. It has enough information on the prevention of environmental pollution and sustainable development of the natural sources .
4. It determine the problems relevant to the environmental, it analyze and solve the problems, select the suitable analytical and modelling techniques and apply them.
5. It evaluate the data and interprete the results

Work Placements
As with any other educational component, credits for work placements are only awarded when the learning outcomes have been achieved and assessed. If a work placement is part of organised mobility (such as Farabi and Erasmus), the Learning Agreement for the placement should indicate the number of credits to be awarded if the expected learning outcomes are achieved.
