    The goalKnowledge attainment in the field of reactor design (continuation to the course Elements of Reactor Design) referred to:nonisothermal reactor design and analysis of nonideal reactors. Also the, the aim of this course is to introduce students to the principles of polymer reaction engineering by presenting the most important processes in the polymer industry, with a focus on mass production of polymers, polyolefins, polystyrene and polyvinyl chloride. Students will become familiar with new trends in polymerization processes.
    The outcomeOn the basis of the knowledge gained in this course, students are capable of solving simpler problems regarding reactor design and analysis of nonideal reactors in polymer engineering.
