Aerosol and Particle Measurement Short Course - 39th Offering
August 18-20, 2014
University of Minnesota, Minneapolis
David Y.H. Pui, University of Minnesota
Why You Should Attend
This course will provide basic aerosol measurement and sampling skills for individuals entering the aerosol and particle field. It is also a good refresher course providing updated information for individuals that are already in the field. The course includes hands-on laboratory experiences at both the TSI laboratory and the University of Minnesota laboratory where participants will be able to discuss their own projects with the instructors and other attendees.
What You Will Learn
Participants will have the opportunity to gain fundamental understandings of aerosol properties and behavior. With laboratory experiments, participants will gain practical training on skills to sample, measure, and characterize airborne particulate matter in a variety of applications, including PM2.5 air pollution measurements, industrial hygiene sampling, nanoparticle exposure measurements, contamination controls in microelectronics and pharmaceutical cleanrooms.
Who Should Attend
Scientists, engineers, and other technical personnel with an interest in the properties and behavior of airborne particles; individuals involved in product design and development with particulate matter problems; individuals working in industrial hygiene, air pollution, cleanrooms, and contamination control and dealing with particle-related problems; individuals who are working in microelectronics, aerospace, automotive, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, pollution control, nanoparticle technology, and other industries with particle related problems or issues.
