Course content

The purpose of the course is to give laboratory experience and competence to students with a passed exam in a theoretically focused course in general chemistry. The course aims to give the student an improved appreciation of their previously obtained knowledge in general chemistry and thereby a competence corresponding to a passed exam in KJ1000 General Chemistry.

Students who are given admittance to the course as students in the course KJ1000 will not be given credits ("studiepoeng") for the course alone, without a previous exam in general chemistry.

Learning outcome

The course will, together with the previous course in general chemistry, give a competence that qualifies for an exception to KJ1000 where this course is required.

The HSE-lecture and HSE-work throughout the semester will give a general understanding of how to work safely in the laboratory.

After completing the course, the student can:

  • Execute simple chemical experiments in the laboratory safely and securely.
  • Describe their laboratory work in laboratory reports.
  • Understand and interpret assessment of risks for simple laboratory experiments, in the form of standardized Safe Job Analysis-forms.

Learning methods and activities

Laboratory work and writing of reports. The course is identical to the laboratory part of KJ1000 General Chemistry and is taught in parallel with KJ1000.

A HSE lecture is a part of the laboratory course.

The students are themselves responsible for acquiring information, including information about compulsory activities, from NTNU's web pages, especially Blackboard. Information about the schedule and contents of compulsory activities will be given by the course coordinator at the beginning of the semester via Blackboard.

Expected work load in the course is 200-225 hours.

Further on evaluation

All laboratory exercises (including HSE training and the written reports) must be approved in order to pass the course.

Required previous knowledge

Admittance to the course requires a passed exam in a basic theoretical course in general chemistry at university level (minimum 7.5 ECTS).

Course materials

Information about the course material will be given when the course starts. The student must contact the person responsible for the course KJ1000 at the start of the semester for practical information!
