This course is for students wanting to develop expertise in designing solutions for contaminated sites. The methodology of evaluation of contaminated sites will be applied. Tools for remediation will be considered according to the state-of-the-art. The students will follow a practical-theoretical approach, following on-going and concluded projects as case studies, allowing a hands-on approach to the implementation of such techniques.
