Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
To acquaint students with complete information on selected industrial complexes, transportation facilities, and not just a passive observer in the form of lectures, but also by an active member on numerous excursions.
Students receive information from the application of specific types of transport and handling equipment and bulk solid materials, design options and their integration into the production and processing units in different industries. Students will acquire the necessary capacity and design calculations.
