Process design for energy efficiency

Minor

This minor offers students a solid foundation of thermodynamics and modelling with advanced applications in the fields of refrigeration and new energy technologies such as solar and wind power. Advanced process thermodynamics offers deeper knowledge of the subject. Introduction to CFD gives students an insight into fluid dynamics and introduces them to the world of CFD modelling.

Students who want to improve their tool palette in the topics of the minor are recommended to select one or more of the courses depending on their individual needs.

Principles of process engineering is a B.Sc. level course intended for those who have not studied enough thermodynamics and related subjects and need to deepen their knowledge before progressing to advanced level courses.
