The air cleaning technology can apply for building, urban, global environmental problems, as well as cleanroom for semiconductor factories and hospitals. This course provides the problems of air quality and the solutions of cleaning technology.
This course focuses on the basics of air quality, method of air cleaning and measurement of air for applying to each research field.
Students will be able to understand the basics of air characteristics, air pollution, aerosol dynamics and air cleaning technology as well as contamination control for cleanroom. Furthermore, you will be able to examine the method of monitoring and cleaning of air pollutants so that you will apply for your research field.
