Exploitation of standard software products in engineering calculations and design (MS Excel, MS Visual Basic, MS Project, MS Visio, etc.), Specialised chemical-engineering software, Construction materials for apparatus, pumps and pipeline systems (survey of materials, criteria of choice, corrosion), Principles of modern designing, Sources of information, Electronic media, Special chemical-engineering topics presented by external co-workers, Individual project.

Learning activities and teaching methods
unspecified, Dialogic (discussion, interview, brainstorming), Work with text (with textbook, with book), Methods of individual activities, Skills training
  • unspecified - 15 hours per semester
  • unspecified - 42 hours per semester
  • unspecified - 28 hours per semester
  • unspecified - 5 hours per semester
  • unspecified - 60 hours per semester
Learning outcomes
To finalise students view about chemical-engineering unit operations as well as tools necessary for engineering practice.
All graduates are expected to have an ability to identify, formulate and solve basic chemical-engineering problems. Also an ability to use modern techniques and engineering tools (MS Excel, MS Project, MS Visio) is expected.
Prerequisites
Chemical Engineering I, II

Assessment methods and criteria
Oral examination, Home assignment evaluation, Self project defence

There is an oral examination. Primary form of exam is the debate about selected themes. Level of acquired knowledge, conceptions and application acquirements is examined. Knowledge is also examined by individual projects during semester whose results are included into total classification.
