Last update: Hasal Pavel prof. Ing. CSc. (19.07.2013)
The course Food Engineering and Bioengineering serves students of (mainly) the Faculty of Food and Biochemical Technology as an alternative to the course Chemical Engineering II. The course extends knowledge gained in Chemical Engineering I to the description of the processes and equipment most frequently used in food technologies and bioengineering applications.
Aim of the course -
Last update: Hasal Pavel prof. Ing. CSc. (30.09.2013)

Students after passing the course will know physico-chemical principles of basic processes of food industries and bioengineering applications. Students will be able to describe these processes both qualitatively and quantitatively using mass and energy balances, kinetic equations and equilibrium equations. Students will be able to solve problems where these processes take place, i.e., they will be able to use combinations of balance, kinetic and equilibrium equations in order to gain, for example, basic dimensions of the equipment.
