PhD Students


Chemical engineering practice

This course provides the students with practical experience with simple "unit operations" based on heat and mass transfer . The students develop the ability to scale-up laboratory results into the design of industrial-size components. goto

Chemical engineering product design

Chemical product design has become more important because of major changes in the chemical industry. This course presents the basic method for chemical product design and gives direct practice to this procedure via a design project. goto

Fluid mechanics and transport phenomena


Introduction to chemical engineering Laboratory Works

This course aims to expose the students to basic and modern processes/systems important to chemical engineers. Students perform experiments in groups, analyze results and use these to design industrial scale processes. Written and oral reports and laborat... goto

Solar photovoltaics and energy systems

Fundamental concepts of solar energy conversion from a thermodynamic perspective are discussed together with the state-of-the-art solar technologies. Students present and critique results from the latest literature. goto
