Learning outcomes
The students are acquainted with approaches to solution of more complex engineering problems from the area of hydraulic and heat transfer processes. Emphasis is put on independent solution of selected tasks (projects), exploitation of scientific literature and other auxiliary means, such as specialised chemical-engineering software.
Graduates are expected to have an ability to identify, formulate and solve problems form fluid flow and heat transfer.

Assessment methods and criteria
Oral examination, Home assignment evaluation

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 test and individual projects during semester whose results are included into total classification.
