Teaching methods
The physical concepts and theory are explained in the theoretical sessions. A session with practical exercises (or potentially a project) follows each theoretical session to practice the theory. The exercises focus where possible on practical problems. For the preparation of the examination, a questionsanswers session is foreseen, with discussion of the course contents.
The exercises related to Part I will be based on the use of a process simulator (ASPEN+) enabling to place the theoretical notions, which have been studied, in a perspective as close as possible to the industrial reality.

Evaluation methods
At the examination, students are evaluated individually according to in advance explained rules. Intermediate interrogation(s) on part(s) of the course is/are possible. Some reports on projects or exercises can be marked and the mark included in the final examination mark.
The part taught by each teacher normally counts for a half of the total mark, unless specified otherwise during the course. However, if a deep deficiency (<=8/20) is found for one part of the course, the total mark will represent a failure at the examination and be reduced to 8/20 as a maximum.
