Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Qualitative description of industrial and natural processes and using this knowledge for apparatus design are main goals of this course. Pies of knowledge from inorganic and organic technology will be developed as well as mass, momentum and heat transfer. Fundamental skills from field of physics, chemistry, physical chemistry and mathematics are highly expected.
