    The goalThe goal of the course is to enable students to think critically and analytically in the light of ; momentum transport phenomena and fundamental engineering principles as well as to make ; decisions and choose the appropriate operations and equipment. Introduction to the way ; of thinking, logic and terminology as well as the sources of information in the area. ; Introduction to various mechanical operations and a more detailed study of basic ones.
    The outcomeThe ability to make the calculations of the basic mechanical operations and equipment.
