Report a description of the knowledge, skills and abilities that the student must demonstrate have acquired at the end of the course, possibly referring to the Dublin descriptors. • The knowledge and ability to understand or spectroscopic Methods and spectral regions or particle Motions involved in spectroscopic transitions or Transitional Rules; • ability to apply knowledge and understanding or Subdivision in under-problems of a chemical problem or summary of experimental information into a coherent physical model or choice of spectroscopic methods on the basis of responses required or critical analysis of experimental results; • communication skills or logical exposure process that leads to investigative choices; • judgment autonomy or choice of spectroscopic methods or analysis of the results.
