Evaluation of grades

To determine the grade, the supervisor will evaluate the final report, presentation and poster. The grade also includes the presentation at the ProcessNet annual conference, as well as the level of commitment and cooperation of the individual student within the group.


Content The chemPLANT competition gives students the opportunity to demonstrate their theoretical knowledge and skills in the broad spectrum of process engineering in a practical task (plant design / process planning). The task is set by a consortium of industrial companies. The teams of 2 to 5 students have 3.5 months to submit their results, which are then presented to a jury at a conference. Creativity and procedural thinking are required in finding the innovative solutions. Possible topics are:
  • Digitalization and Industry 4.0
  • Process planning and conceptual design of new plants
  • Sustainability in the chemical industry

The evaluation of the developed solution is based on technical correctness, creativity, consideration of ecological and economic aspects and style and language of the written elaboration.

A supervisor will be assigned to students to coordinate the process of the module; however, the supervisor does not cooperate in solving the tasks from the chemPLANT competition.

Competencies / intended learning achievements

Building on the knowledge acquired so far in their studies, the students are to develop a creative solution to a practical design problem from the chemical industry. Students are expected to develop a creative solution to a real-world design problem from the chemical industry based on their knowledge acquired over the course of their studies. The focus is on the independent work on the problem by the group and the cooperation of the individual students within the group. The students deepen their theoretical knowledge and gain extensive practical experience.


Will be announced by the supervisor
