Learning outcomes:
This course teaches students about four selected software packages and their application in the field of energy technology and process engineering. Each student has the opportunity to become acquainted with one of the four products in more detail.  
Students will be taught how these tools can be employed for design and layout tasks and how they can be used to control, and therefore reduce, the number of experimental studies required.
