Τhe students upon successful completion of the course:
(1) They will be able to solve basic problems in chemical engineering, where mass transger is important role to play.
(2)They will be able to calculate concentrations of pollutants in the atmosphere, river, lakes and ground waters.
(3) They will learn to design fixed bed adsorbers and membrane units for gas separations using simplified methods.
(4) The will study and learn to design simple controlled release systems.
