Learning outcomes of the course unit:
The project represents individual student work to solve control of laboratory processes in chemical and biochemical technologies. The teamwork develops a student’s skills and experiences necessary to solve the complex controller design task. Student combined knowledge from various subjects in engineering study. He studies a mathematical model of the selected laboratory process, designs and simulates its behaviour, and verifies it at the actual plant. In conclusion, student forms results, present them and defends them in the scientific discussion.
