Content and learning outcomes
The purpose of the course is to give in-depth knowledge on the value chains of process industries and how societa- and technological development affect their configuration and characteristics with respect to; technology, sustainability and resilience. Each time the course is given (yearly), the content of the course revolves around a theme. Theme is announced when the course opens for applications. The course is built around two parts. First, a two day seminar, where students participate in lectures from industrial leaders as well as researchers. Secondly, a project, where students, individually or in pairs, specialize in a specific topic. The participating industry leaders present current trends and challenges for the value chains, which are then positioned and discussed by researchers in these topics. The projects are presented during a final full day seminar.
Intended learning outcomes
On completion of the course, the student will be able to:
- Analyse and evaluate process industry value chains with respect to technology, economy, sustainability and resilience.
- Analyse how radical and iterative developments in manufacturing processes affect sustainability and materials and by-products in the value chain.
- Position industrial trends and challenges in current research on value chains of process industries.
- Apply research relevant to the course on a project.
