Aims, contents and method of the course

Based on the methods learnt in the practical courses I, II and III, a full analysis of a foodstuff has to be carried out. The students plan the analyses themselves, carry them out and evaluate the results. In addition, the assessment and evaluation (marketable food or not) is carried out. In this way, students will be able to independently carry out and evaluate a full analysis of a complex product, as they are required to do in food monitoring, the food industry or in food research.
