The program is directed at the broad field of the process and product industry and aims to prepare the course participants for leading functions in the field of process design and knowledge-intensive product development. The objective is to develop their ability to define feasible targets, to identify and acquire the available means, and to synthesize these skills in the form of a completed result within the time agreed on. Linked to this all is the ability to work in and lead a usually multidisciplinary team. These are characteristic qualities for the profession of design engineer in the process and product industry.
Emphasis lies on amassing knowledge and practicing the skills in finding technical solutions for the design of:
- products for the process industry
- processes and constructions for the manufacture of these products
- new processes and methods for the production of chemical bulk materials and energy, as well as for environmental technology equipment.
