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
*Knows technical solutions for typical mixing problems
*Can solve fluid flow problems based on material, energy and momentum balances
*Can use modern simulation tools to solve fluid flow problems numerically
*Understands how fluid flow affects process performance and can design processes to ensure proper fluid flow
*Understands the nature of  non-Newtonian and multiphase fluid flows
