Assessment and permitted materials

Beurteilung: mündlich

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Based on the lectures of process engineering more fundamental
principles of unit operations and unit processes of food technology, as
well as specific unit operations and especially unit processes are
taught. This knowledge is the basis for under-standing the specific food
technologies and to realize connections and common ground between these technologies
