First time: Study year 2003-2004
Course contents:
The main part of the course is an individual assignment where the student shall plan an industrial production plant. Examples of such plants are oil refinery, industrial production of bioethanol, industrial cleaning of gases, district heating systems, etc. In addition some unit operation will be described, particularly units that are relevant for the assignment. Some simulation will be conducted using the simulation tool Aspen Plus from Aspentech. 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 simulate a production unit.
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.
Teaching support:
The teacher/s is/are available for extra support and advice during office hours, and can also be reached by telephone and e-mail.
The syllabus is handed out when the course starts.

The course is tailored to the students which have chosen the Master"s profile in Machinery-, Process- and Product Development (M-MP) and Food Industrial Processes (MIP), but is also suited for other students that have passed the course TMPP251, and have relevant background.
The examiner participates in discussions about the organisation of the oral examination, and he is a co-examiner. The examiner takes part in the yearly revision of the course. The final examination is carried out according to a standardised set of criteria. The criteria used, as well as assessment and the results which are achieved in each field, are made available to the individual student.
