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
*has hands on experience in experimental laboratory work of the selected case
*is capable of finding and combining information on various subjects of unit operations and unit processes
*understands the operation principles of the laboratory scale apparatus and its relation to catalyzed chemical reactions as well as phase and reaction equilibrium
*is capable to analyze the compositions of the streams in practice
*is capable of working in group and organizing the work load in a meaningful way
