Enkeltfag Engelsk 5 ECTS

Evaluering af sundheds-, miljø- og livscykluspåvirkninger

Overordnede kursusmål

• Gained core competences: Develop your own impact pathway from source to damage on human health, ecosystem quality and natural resources
• Gained knowledge: Methods and data to assess and evaluate health and environmental impacts in a life cycle perspective from local to global scale, thorough understanding of assessment principles, mathematical modeling steps, working with available models and data
• Gained skills: Identify, apply and interpret results of assessment methods and tools for quantifying environmental, health and life cycle impacts associated with emissions and resources consumption, incl. limitations, assumptions and uncertainty
• Presumed knowledge: Fundamentals in mathematical modeling and environmental chemistry; knowledge in life cycle (impact) assessment and/or risk assessment and/or policy analysis is helpful
• Required expertise in follow-up education (as engineers): Identify and apply approaches for evaluating chemical pollution problems in different contexts
