Process Technology

Education and research in Process Technology is given high priority at Telemark University College (TUC), and there are strong links to the local process industry which is part of the largest industrial cluster in Norway. The local industry includes production of cement, polymers, fertilisers, different industrial gases, solar cell wafers, and metal alloys. In addition to the research activity at TUC, strong industrial research centres are also located in the region. In Norway, offshore acitivty is of high importance, giving an advanced oil and gas industry. The educational and research programmes at TUC focus on onshore as well as offshore activities, and the programmes are at high international level. The research networks involve many universities and industrial companies. The M.Sc. programme in Process Teechnology is industrially oriented, with emphasize on applied science and close cooperation with local and regional industrial companies. The main strategic field of technological research at TUC is Gas and Energy Systems, and this programme emphasizes key components of process technology within this field of researc. The following key topics are covered in this M.Sc. programme: Process and reactor design, Process equipment design, Powder treatment and transport, Multiphase flow, Technical safety and prevention of hazards, Fluid flow and analysis including CFD, Membranes, Combustion, Thermodynamics, Separation technology. The programme includes a R&D group project with external partners, project management training and an individual thesis, to be carried out during the final (fourth) semester. Courses also emphasize student participation, with individual and group exercises, and offer the introduction to advanced computer based tools as well as practical laboratory and field work.
