Undergraduate courses

Aerosol Technology (MAM242)

7.5 credits

The aim of the course is for engineering students to acquire an understanding of the mechanisms behind the generation, transport, transformations and deposition of airborne particles that cause pollution. It also aims to provide knowledge of sampling strategies and measuring techniques for these particles. The goal is for the students to obtain a basis for the evaluation of health risks and learn the fundamentals of elimination technology, manufacturing processes and clean room technology.


Aerosol Technology Project (MAMN20)

7.5 credits


Methods for Environmental Monitoring (FKF100, FKFN35)

7.5 credits

The course aims at providing an understanding of advanced environmental measurement techniques, with a focus on air quality applications, and how these techniques can be used to provide a scientifically sound basis for estimates of the impact of various human activities on the environment and human health. The course also aims at stimulating the student to reflect on how our common-day human activities may affect the environment and human health, and at acquiring a capability to assess and discuss environmental issues within the working life and societal debate from a natural science perspective.


Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics (KOO090, FKFF01)

4 credits

The course should provide understanding of physical, chemical and meteorological processes in the atmosphere as well as environmental consequences of changes of atmospheric composition caused by human activities, such as climate change and destruction of stratospheric ozone. The course should also provide a capability to assess and discuss environmental issues within the working life and societal debate from a natural science perspective.

 

Degree Project in Aerosol Technology (MAM720)

30 credits

The aim of the degree project is for the student to develop and demonstrate the requisite knowledge and skills to work independently as an engineer. The degree project is an independent project that is to be executed individually or in pairs.

Course application 

This course is a two week intensive summer course which usually is scheduled during the first half of June. The course is a collaboration between researchers from University of Helsinki and Lund University. In 2013 and 2016 the course was given in Lund, in 2017 at Aarhus University, in 2018 at the Station for Measuring Ecosystem-Atmosphere Relations-SMEAR II in Hyytiälä, Finland and in 2019 it will be given at Lund University again. The course aim to provide basic education on the most important biological, chemical and physical mechanisms in atmospheric science and how to implement these processes numerically in atmospheric models with the main target to educate the "Next Generation of Atmospheric Modellers".

More detailed information is available on the course website (see also anonym feedbacks from earlier courses) and this year's course announcement.

The course should also provide a capability to assess and discuss environmental issues within the working life and societal debate from a natural science perspective.


Particles and Health (MAM001F)

6 credits

The aim of the course is to mediate knowledge of how particles may affect human health. Particles of different origin such as atmospheric, indoor, workplace aerosols and engineered nanoparticles will be covered. The participants will learn how to assess exposures and effects of particles as well as relationships between particle properties and toxicological effects. The course will provide insight into the latest research in the field through lectures given by leading invited researchers.


Reading course in aerosol science (MAM010F)

Maximum 7.5 credits

The aim of the course is to increase knowledge and reflection in the area of specialization of the PhD student. The course consists of sub-blocks, each of which focuses on a research paper in the doctoral student's topic of specialization. For each sub-block, the following shall be met: 1. Literature search to select an appropriate scientific article. 2. The student reads and analyzes the article and write a report. When all steps are performed for one sub-block, the student receives 0.5 credits

 

Seminar course in aerosol science (MAM025F)

Maximum 5 credits

The aim of the course is to increase knowledge and reflection in the area of specialization of the PhD student and to develop ability to link own research to new methodologies and society. The course consists of sub-blocks, each of which focuses on a series of seminars related to aerosol science.

 

Aerosols and lung physiology

4 credits

Education on particle-lung interactions. Structure and Function of the Lung; Ventilation; Blood Gas Transport; Acid-Base Balance; Diffusion; Pulmonary Blood Flow; Pulmonary Gas Exchange I; Pulmonary Gas Exchange II; Mechanics of Breathing I; Mechanics of Breathing II; Control of Ventilation; Defense Systems of the Lung; Respiration Under Stress; Respiration at the Limit; Pulmonary Function Tests; Obstructive Diseases I: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease; Obstructive Diseases II: Asthma and Localized Airway Obstruction; Restrictive Diseases.

 

Airborne Transmission of Infectious Agents (MAM015F)

2 credits

Dates: 10-12 March 2020. Contact Malin Alsved or Jakob Löndahl for more information.
The aim of the course is to provide the participants with an overview of airborne transmission of infectious agents in various environments and to give the participants knowledge on methods to detect and prevent airborne spreading of such agents.


Experimental Methodology (MVK030F

7.5 credits 

Dates: March 6 – June 5, 2018

Contact Öivind Andersson for more information

The course aims to give a deeper understanding of the experimental method. It provides students with basic knowledge about fundamental concepts and techniques that are applied across a wide range of experimental research fields. To aid understanding, these are presented in a practical context.The course is built around examples and exercises as well as a small research project where the central concepts and techniques are applied.
