Department of Process Engineering

The mission of the Department of Process Engineering is a knowledge transfer to the undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate students, as well as scientific and professional research in the field of process engineering. Department promotes the process engineering implementation in biotechnology, food technology and chemical technology, with the special emphasise in the food production and food processing.

Students will be introduced with the knowledge from the field of engineering thermodynamics, heat and mass transfer, unite operations, reaction engineering, bioprocess engineering, ecological engineering, engineering of organic and inorganic materials, numerical methods, modelling, optimisation and automatization, equipment and process design, and related disciplines.

Scientific and professional works are closely related to the student education. Researches are currently being performed in the field of drying, extraction, heat and mass transfer, thermal properties of materials, improvement of the safety in cereals production and processing, non‑destructive analysis methods in the processes of the food production and storage, biofuels production (biogas and biodiesel), enzymes kinetics measurements, and the application of microorganisms in the food, agro and wood industry waste treatment.
