Methodology:
In the first day, the necessary prerequisite concepts will be reviewed and discussed. The design of specific processes will be discussed on the second and third day. Each lecture will be followed by a calculation exercise. Besides lectures and exercises, the training will include group activities such as design, operation and trouble-shooting case studies.
