10. Development directions; new technologies; R&D activities in Poland.

Project classes:

Students will design the flow sheet of selected process related to coal gasification technology in ChemCad process simulator. Students then will calculate process parameters and prepare mass and energy balance. The results should by prepared in form of the short report.
During the project students will also prepare one presentation on the basis of selected scientific paper.

Method of calculating the final grade:

Evaluation is a shared responsibility between the teacher and the student. The purpose of the
evaluation is to demonstrate how well the student has learned specific course materials, the principles, concepts and terms relevant to the gasification field, and to determine the students’ ability to apply that knowledge to specific situations.
Grading formula:
FG=03*PG+0,7*FEG
Where:

  • FG-final grade
  • PG-Project Grade
  • FEG-Final Exam grade
    Grade for the project and the exam must be positive ie 3 and above

• PMGlectur – Grade of achieved LOs relevant to lecture test
• PMGsem – Grade of achieved LOs relevant to seminar delivered work
• PMGexam – Grade of achieved LOs relevant to final exam
w – student’s activity; w=1; attending at least 80% of lectures, w = 0,7 more than 50% and less than 80%, w = 0,3 for more than 50% unjustified absences.
