Qualification Information

Students will be able to:

(general competences)

  • carry out scientifically supported analysis and synthesis in the field of chemistry and chemical engineering and demonstrate understanding of the influence of technical solutions on environmental and social relations,
  • deal holistically with a problem on the basis of fundamental analytical techniques and methodologies,
  • use acquired knowledge to address qualitative and quantitative tasks in the field of chemistry and chemical engineering,
  • identify and resolve problems through the application of scientific methods and procedures in a given specialised field,
  • recognise and complement good laboratory practice, carry out standard laboratory procedures including the use of instruments in synthesis and analytical procedures, and communicate and interpret laboratory results,
  • handle chemicals safely with regard to their physical and chemical properties and carry out a risk assessment regarding the chemicals and procedures used,
  • observe and measure chemical properties and changes and systematically and reliably control, record and process data in chemistry and chemical engineering,
  • acquire knowledge from relevant literature and data sources, including computer databases,
  • communicate effectively, including in English, and use modern presentation tools,
  • work as part of a team in multidisciplinary groups,
  • demonstrate understanding of the principles of leadership and understanding of business practice,
  • demonstrate understanding of their own professional and ethical responsibility,
  • pursue autonomous learning, including in-depth learning, and recognise the need for lifelong learning.

(subject-specific competences)

  • demonstrate knowledge of relevant basic disciplines and their genesis (particularly mathematics, chemistry, biochemistry, physics) in order to understand, describe and address phenomena in chemistry and chemical engineering:
  • demonstrate understanding of the basis of chemical terminology, nomenclature and the use of units,
  • demonstrate familiarity with the basic types of chemical reactions and their basic characteristics,
  • demonstrate familiarity with the bases and procedures of chemical analysis and the characterisation of compounds,
  • demonstrate familiarity with the basic methods of structural tests, including spectroscopy, and the structural characteristics of elements and their compounds, including stereochemistry,
  • demonstrate familiarity with the characteristics of various aggregate states and the theories that describe them,
  • demonstrate familiarity with the basics of thermodynamics and their application in chemistry,
  • demonstrate knowledge of the kinetics of chemical change, including catalysis,
  • demonstrate knowledge of the classification of elements and their compounds, including the periodic system,
  • demonstrate knowledge of the properties of aliphatic, aromatic, heterocyclic and organometallic compounds and the nature and properties of functional groups in organic molecules,
  • demonstrate familiarity with the main synthesis pathways in organic and inorganic chemistry,
  • demonstrate familiarity with the connection between the properties of materials and their atomic or molecular structure,
  • demonstrate familiarity with the chemistry of biological molecules and processes,
  • demonstrate understanding of the general structure of chemical engineering and the connections between its sub-disciplines,
  • demonstrate understanding of basic principles in chemical engineering:
  • matter and energy balances, motion quantity balances, cost balances,
  • equilibrium,
  • flow processes (chemical reaction, matter transfer, energies and motion quantities) – and use them to resolve various chemical engineering problems (analytically, numerically and graphically),
  • basic operations,
  • demonstrate understanding of the basic concepts of process management,
  • demonstrate understanding of the principles of modern methods of process and product measurements,
  • plan, implement, interpret and report on simple experiments,

-

To complete their studies, students must complete all course units prescribed by the study programme.

-

Students' knowledge is assessed by means of practical exercises and seminar papers, and also via products, projects, performances, services, etc. and by examinations. Examination performance is scored as follows: 10 (excellent); 9 (very good: above-average knowledge but with some mistakes); 8 (very good: solid results); 7 (good); 6 (adequate: knowledge satisfies minimum criteria); 5–1 (inadequate). In order to pass an examination, a candidate must achieve a grade between adequate (6) and excellent (10).
