Chemical/Biochemical Engineering Laboratory
4 weeks Summer University 2010 in Copenhagen
for non-European university students.
July 2 – July 31, 2010
The Department of Chemical Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU)
invites non-European chemical engineering students to participate in an experimental
course in chemical engineering/process technology. The course takes place on up-to-date
pilot plant facilities in a programme, which combines detailed theoretical and practical
engineering experiences with social get-together in an international student atmosphere
and opportunities to discover wonderful Copenhagen and the historic and scenic
No formal requirements, but the course
is based on theoretical knowledge in unit
operations, heat and mass balances, ge-
neral process technology, reaction engi-
neering and kinetics, process control,
flow diagrams and simple chemical ana-
In addition ordinary university level back-
ground in inorganic, organic, physical
chemistry and mathematics is expected.
The students must have acceptance from
their home university to attend.
The course is a special designed version for non-European students of the ordinary DTU
course in large scale unit operations laboratory. In teams of two persons 7 exercises
including reports are performed. The offered exercises include: Liquid flow in pipes, pump
systems, flow in packed columns, agitation, filtration, drying in a tunnel, spray drying,
fluidization and fluidized bed drying, distillation, absorption, ultrafiltration, heat exchanging,
evaporation and crystallisation, centrifugation, fixed bed reactor and process control.
Each practical experiment will last ½ -1 day. Preparation of reports will take appr. 2 days
each. In addition every team is expected to make one oral presentation on a given non-
technical subject. Reporting and presentations will be supervised by the accompanying
graders. In case
