    The goalMain aim of the course is that student acquires basic knowledge about mass transfer phenomena and mass transfer operations, including calculations. ; ;
    The outcomeThe student will learn about mass transfer phenomena for the first time. Also, student will obtain knowledge about principles of five different mass transfer operations and about calculations connected with them.
