    The goalThe goal of the course is to enable students to think critically and analytically ; in the light of transport phenomena and basic unit operations as well as to ; design the equipment used in chemical industry. Introduction to the way ; of thinking, logic and terminology as well as the sources of information in the area.
    The outcomeThe ability to choose, calculate and design the basic types of equipment used in chemical industry for the mechanical, heat and mass transfer operations.
    Contents of lecturesThe basic principles for the selection and design of equipment and devices in chemical industry. Material and energy balances and specificity of the procedure as a basis for the equipment design. Standard and special equipment, construction materials, energy sources, technical documentation and regulations on the design of the equipment used in chemical industry. Lists of equipment.
