Master in technology, Machine and process technology (M-MP), Industrial economics (M-IØ),
Course contents:
The course gives an introduction to process technology as an important element in modern production systems, and special focus is on technology and equipment relevant for the oil and gass industry. Both traditional production of oli and gass (fosil) and production based and reneveable sources (biodiesel/biogass/bioethanol,bioplastics) will be presented and discussed . Some production lines will be followed, and the methods and equipment will be described. The student will be expected to do calculation exercises in mass and energy balances. Every student shall also individually seek and gain particular knowledge of one topic and present the finding for the outher fellow students.
Learning outcome:
Having finished the course, the students shall have gained knowledge of important aspects of the production of raw-materials, the flow of materials and important processing and production technologies, particularly within the oil an gas industry. Additionally the student shall be able to do simple mass and energy calculations.
