Annotation -
Students will acquire fundamental knowledge in the area of Microchemical Engineering. The goal of this course is to introduce advances and specifics related to work in micro to the nanoscale. Emphasis will be given on description of governing factors significantly different from those observed in the macroscopic realm. Students will learn i) how to design, optimize and fabricate microdevices, ii) utilization of Microchemical Engineering in various field of applied research, iii) numerical simulation as a powerful tool for the study of multi-phase systems and surface phenomena in micro and nanoscale.
