EXAMS

Exam description

Exam will consist in the preparation and discussion of a technical report prepared by groups of three/four students reporting the numerical simulation of an industrial chemical process (or part of it) using one or more software introduced during the course

Assessment methods

The evaluation will take into account overall the scientific quality of the written report with particular reference to the numerical simulation carried out and individually the clarity, synthesis and correctness of the argument put forward during the final presentation of the work
