Studenti budou umět:

Využít možnosti moderních softwarových nástrojů pro modelování a simulaci chemicko-technologických procesů.

Modelovat jednodušší technologickou jednotku, volit vhodné výpočetní metody.

Použít sestavený model pro sledování vlivu procesních parametrů na výtěžky, kvalitu produktů a další proměnné.

Optimalizovat některé parametry procesů.
