title

The IVPTL-NIRS is an educational project conducted by the International Council of Near Infrared Spectroscopy and the University of Córdoba. Our goal is to create a platform on which researchers, professionals and students from a wide range of fields may find courses to learn about NIR technology and other non-destructive spectral sensors. Indeed, we envisage a continuous transfer of knowledge supported by the NIR community. Join us to progress this exciting challenge!

NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS

4th edition of "Fundamentals and Applications of Near Infrared Technology"

The 4th edition of the course "Fundamentals and Applications of Near Infrared Technology” has its beginning next May 30th, 2020, running through to September 30th, 2020.

The course, coordinated by Professors Ana Garrido Varo and Dolores Pérez Marín, requires a workload of 6 ECTS. Upon successful completion of the course, the student is issued two certificates: 

1) Certificate of Achievement by ICNIRS (      http://www.icnirs.org/).

2) Certificate issued by the University of Córdoba with the recognition of the credits (6 ECTS) of the course

The theoretical lectures, practical exercises, interactive self-learning exercises, and tools, virtual visits to laboratories, etc. cover basic NIR concepts, such as applications of NIRS in a variety of situations in private and public companies. By completing the course, the student will achieve the following learning outcomes:

• a basic, theoretical, and practical understanding of NIRS spectroscopy.

• the ability to work independently with various types of NIR data to determine quantitative and qualitative information.

• identify his/her needs regarding further education/training in order to become a qualified NIRS professional.

• identify those NIR applications which are ready to be implemented at the industry/laboratory level and those which are still in need of additional research and development work.

The course is structured in 30 on-demand video lectures of about 1 hour each. Students can attend the lectures via the Internet at any time and from anywhere during the course period according to the timetable. The lectures can be interactive, and the lecturer can respond to the student's questions and discussion on Moodle at any time and from anywhere as well.

Each lecture has a pdf with the class notes. The minimum requirement for participants is to have access to a computer and an Internet connection.

Those participants who are interested in earning a certificate of the 6 ECTS credits, will have to pass an exam consisting of 30 quizzes (one per lecture). Students will have two hours' time to complete each quiz and only one attempt.

Registration fees are 600 Euros + bank fees.

 

The registration period will start on the 13th of May and continues through Sep 10th.
