Environmetal Engineering (AE0B02EKE, AE0M02EKE)

doc. Ing. Rudolf Bálek, CSc.


Environmental natural and physical components e.g. mechanic, electric, magnetic fields, excited and ionising particles and waste are treated in this course. Measuring systems, methods of measurement and sensors of environmental quantities are dealt with. Many of these methods are practically exercised in laboratories.
