2. Pre-Requisites

To have passed the basic training module

3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession
This subject is related to the subject of Chemical Engineering. The students learn different industrial chemical processes where basic operations are used (shown in the subject of Chemical Engineering). In addition, this subject gives a global vision of what is the chemical industry and different aspects related to it such as technological, safety and environmental issues, which are useful for the professional futureo f the students.

5. Objectives or Learning Outcomes
Course learning outcomes
Encourage and promote in the student all those values ¿¿and attitudes inherent to scientific activity.
To have a general vision about the different chemical-industrial processes, the economic importance that each one of them has and the industrial interest that the products and subproducts obtained have.
Provide the student with knowledge about the occupational health and safety of the different chemical-industrial processes and their environmental impact, insisting that a good design of the process also implies that it is safe and ecological.
To ensure that the student is able to search and select information in the field of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering and that he / she is capable of processing and presenting it adequately both orally and in writing.
Develop your capacity for synthesis, being critical and objective.
Develop your ability to work as a team.
Learn to develop topics and acquire skills in the oral and written presentation at the time of the presentation of results.
Additional outcomes
To develop students' capacity for initiative in approaching and solving specific chemistry problems, as well as for interpreting the results obtained

Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Other methods of assessment 10.00% 0.00% VISIT TO COMPANIES AND EXHIBITION OF WORKS
Final test 90.00% 100.00% FINAL EXAM
Total: 100.00% 100.00%  
According to art. 6 of the UCLM Student Evaluation Regulations, it must be provided to students who cannot regularly attend face-to-face training activities the passing of the subject, having the right (art. 13.2) to be globally graded, in 2 annual calls per subject , an ordinary and an extraordinary one (evaluating 100% of the competences).

Evaluation criteria for the final exam:
  • Continuous assessment:
    Modules are completed by taking either a single (final) module examination or two partial exams. The first partial will serve to eliminate matter in the ordinary final exam. The minimum grade required to make average between the two partials is 4.0 points. To complete the program, the student shall have to obtain a minimum of 5.0 points.
    The visit to companies and the exhibition of works will be 10% of the final grade.
    The rest (90%) is the qualification of the exams, partial or final, as the case may be.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    Non-continuous assessment will be carried out by means of a final exam. The minimum mark to pass the course will be 5 out of 10.

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
The same criteria as final exam
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
The same criteria as final exam
