The “Process design and analysis” minor

Last modification on: 06/07/2014 - 15:36

The main target of this minor is to train engineers able to design and build the plants of the future. It enables to get accustomed to process design tools by dealing with both the conceptual approaches of process design and the methods to optimise the design of production units.
Openings on new generations of processes are also presented especially in the fields of multi-function systems such as reactive distillation or in the field of micro-processes.
