Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The first part of the course covers the basics of metals through hydro-and pyro-metallurgy and electro-chemical metallurgy.

The second part of the course provides an overview of the entire process from raw materials to paper products. The emphasis here is on the different ways you can free tree and plant fibers, how and why they work and what problems each approach brings.

Intended learning outcomes

After the course the students should be abel to:

  • have obtained fundamental knowledge about the fundamental processes of metals and paper and their application in industrial settings.
  • have obtained basic knowledge of different terminology basic concepts in materials production.
  • be able to describe and explain how an industrial process chain for the material production of metals and paper is structured and why.
  • have obtained a clear picture of today's professional role of engineers in the metal and paper processing industries.
  • apply both Swedish and English as working language in the subject area.
