2. Pre-Requisites

Those established in general for the Degree

3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession

This subject is taught in the third year of the Degree and consists of a single subject that will be taught in the first semester. Its study is fundamental for the Chemical Engineer's training since based on previously acquired knowledge about transport mechanisms of the three extensive properties (matter, energy and momentum) and the basic operations of fluid flow and heat transmission, as well as on the thermodynamics of mixtures and the equilibrium between phases. It allows to approach the study of the different operations of separation by transfer of matter commonly used in chemical processes.
