Prerequisites
Advanced knowledge on chemical technology subjects and identification and development of the specific scientific areas related with the project theme

Objectives
The unit has two main objectives: to assist students in developing the skills necessary for chemical industries design and enable the practical application and integration of knowledge in the field of chemical technology.

Program
Practical component: 1. Introduction; 2. Literature review techniques and project structure 3. Market analysis and production planning 4. Chemical technology project - from block chart to the layout. Tutorial monitoring of student projects. Case-to-case discussion of issues related with the projects in course

Evaluation Methodology
The students will develop a project subct to public presentation. An intermediate presentation or practical assignments may be required in compliance with the regulatory provisions of the master's program.
