  • Class attendance - 26 hours per semester
Learning outcomes
The aim of course is to provide basic information about main types of chemical technologies. The course introduction applies to basic principles of chemical technologies and technological definitions. Next parts of course contain information on essential procedures of inorganic technology (catalysis, electrolytical, electrotermical, termical and metallurgic processes), organic technology (crude oil and coal processing, consequential petrochemical processes) and biotechnology (basic fermentative productions). The production plant excursion is included in course program.
Ability to transform basic technological knowledge to chemistry teaching, ability to apply obtained knowledge in other chemical and related disciplines.
Prerequisites
Knowledge base of inorganic and organic chemistry and biochemistry.

Assessment methods and criteria
Written examination

Knowledge base of inorganic and organic chemistry and biochemistry.
