ENS650 QUALIFICATION EXAM 0 0 0
It refers to an examination that qualifies students to continue studies at a Ph.D. thesis and see how prepared they are for the looming examinations. It is almost a gauge on how knowledgeable one is within the chosen subject. It is in two steps: Written and oral examination. When the student passes the written exam he/she may take the oral exam in front of jury members. This eaxam is required as pre-requisite to take ENS 600.

In chemical terms water is a dilute solution of various compounds. It can also hold suspensions of several organic and inorganic compounds. This course is about the interactions between these compounds. During this course intermolecular forces (dipole-dipole, ion-dipole, hydrogen bonding, dispersion forces) and the properties of solutions topics are discussed in detail. This course aims understanding of chemical phenomena that occur in water in order to find solutions for water pollution, and also water and wastewater related environmental engineering problems. Principles and applications of chemical equilibria, acid-base reactions, solubility, complex formation, and redox reactions are mainly discussed in this course.
