Synopsis:

The course focuses on describing the interdisciplinary relationships of living and non-living nature with electrical engineering. By integrating electrical engineering into classical environmental practices, new methods and techniques are being developed that either focus on predictive environmental protection from industrial influences or address their consequences. The course discusses both routinely used technologies as well as prototype and laboratory technologies, mostly applicable to insitu remediation. Inspiration from self-renewing natural processes provides the ideal motivation and platform for developing and testing new innovative methods. The course is complemented by laboratory work carried out at CTU, UCT, IMCH and selected excursions. Laboratory facilities have been created for the course at the FEE CTU in Prague.
