Please note! Course description is confirmed for two academic years, which means that in general, e.g. Learning outcomes, assessment methods and key content stays unchanged. However, via course syllabus, it is possible to specify or change the course execution in each realization of the course, such as how the contact sessions are organized, assessment methods weighted or materials used.
After the course the student can:
describe industrial problem as a system in terms of its thermodynamic variables,
use thermochemical properties of systems and their analytical expressions in the simulation of properties and processes,
analyse and model experimental data in the calculations of chemical equilibria,
assess experimental data and use the Calphad method
