The students have the task of planning a process engineering plant on the basis of a general task. This includes process development and selection on the basis of alternative evaluations, mass and energy balances, process and PI-diagrams, design of the main equipment, installation planning and a profitability analysis. Due to the varying complexity of the tasks, detailing of individual sub-areas can take place. The work is carried out in teams of 8-10 students, which are put together by lot. The team has the task to organize itself as a team and to apply the knowledge of all courses learned during the course of study. The group reports weekly about the achieved results and the planned work both in a report and through a lecture. The project concludes with final presentations of all participants and usually a field trip to an industrial company to discuss the results.
Students can work under real project conditions. This includes dealing with time pressure, meeting deadlines, and making decisions even based on limited information. They are able to use the knowledge acquired in the previous courses and obtain missing information in a timely manner. In addition, students will be able to express their findings in scientifically correct reports, prepare and deliver presentations, work in a team, manage their own work, and resolve conflicts during the work process.
