The lecture course of Electrochemistry is offered in the first semester to third-year undergraduate and to graduate students. The aim of this course is to teach the theory behind a number of advanced electrochemical methods and the basic principles of modern instrumentation devices.
Course No. 0351-3815 Electrochemistry
The lecture course is followed by a laboratory course, which takes place in the second semester. In the laboratory, the theory studied in the first semester is applied to the use of modern instrumental techniques in electrochemistry.
Course No. 0351-3817 Laboratory in Electrochemistry
