      The goalThe objective of this course is to introduce students to modern methods of separation for multicomponent systems, to enable them to apply the knowledge acquired and during undergraduate studies and also to follow the development of science in this field worldwide with the engineering and scientific aspects Also, students should learn to apply their knowledge to specific examples of separations in the chemical, pharmaceutical and food industries and environmental protection.
      The outcomeAfter successful completion of the course students are able to independently develop various separation processes, particularly in integrated systems in which both a chemical reaction and separation are present.
