Planned learning activities and teaching methods

The course uses teaching methods in form of individual consultation. The e-learning system (LMS Moodle) is available to teachers and students.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

Graded course-unit credit system. The student evaluation depends on the active attendance and the correctly solved separate numerical set of calculation exerceces. The exam consists of the oral examination, studens have to show basic theoretical, numerical and practical knowledge in the branch of chemical engineering praxis.
