Process Engineering

Enlarged view: Flow diagram

Process engineering is a quite interdisciplinary field that involves subject areas out of mechanical engineering, physics, chemistry, mathematics and biology. This discipline is mainly dealing with development and implementation of technical processes and plants that are able to change the state, the properties as well as the composition of a material. The focus is on design, operation, control and optimization of chemical, physical and biological processes. Moreover, also the importance of computer-based methods in process engineering is continuously increasing.
