The main objective of this course is to make the student familiar with the basic concepts and physics of the most abundant non-destructive spectroscopic techniques utilized for on- or at-line process monitoring and quality control in the modern food, pharma or biotech-industry.
Participants will obtain knowledge on pros and cons of various spectroscopic measurements (electron, vibrational and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy) and perform hands on spectroscopic measurements and data analysis (qualitatively and quantitatively) on selected biological mixture problems.
The course will enable the participant to:
- Suggest and apply spectroscopic monitoring equipment and sampling to solve specific problems
- Operate selected spectroscopic equipment and application to complex biological material
- Interpret qualitatively selected spectroscopic data from biological samples
- Evaluate spectroscopic data quantitatively with basic chemometrics (data analytical tools PCA and PLS)
The course is offered as a single-subject course at the Faculty of Science. Single-subject courses typically run for seven to nine weeks with scheduled activities approx. one day per week.
You will be attending the course together with full-time students from the Faculty of Science, and you must meet various admission requirements. The course ends with an exam.
The number of places is limited, and they are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, so do not delay your application!
