Teaching language: NO
(NO=norsk, EN=Engelsk)
Teaching exam periods:
This course starts in Autumn parallel. This course has teaching/evaluation in Autumn parallel, .
Course frequency: Annually
First time: 2003H
Course contents:
The main part of the course is an individual assignment where the student shall plan an industrial production process, with the main focus on bioprocesses. Examples of such processes are Biorefinery, industrial production of bioethanol, biodiesel, fermentation, production of microbial biomass. In addition a description of some unit operations will be done, particularly units that are relevant for the assignment. The course will contain energi and mass balance calculations. If practical, there will be a visit to a relevant industrial plant.
Learning outcome:
The course will give the student knowledge on how to put together several unit operations into a production unit. Dimentioning the different units so that they are adapted to each other is central. Additionally the students will gain knowledge in how to perform energi and mass balance calculations. 
Learning activities:
The teaching is a combination of lectures/seminars, self-study, group work and exercises. Problem-based learning (PBL) is central. The main part of the course is an assignment where the student determines what the solution looks like. The project report will be in a specified format.
