CONGRESO Developing student outcomes in problem sessions of Separation Processes. Comparative study between Bachelor and Master degrees.

Abstract

Separation processes represent an important part of the curriculum of Chemical Engineering. Therefore, the Master of Chemical Engineering at the Universitat Politècnica de Valencia has included an advanced subject of separation processes that complements the knowledge acquired in the homologous subject in the Bachelor degree. As the competences are obtained through an evolutionary process, Bachelor and Master must represent two domains of competence levels. In the specific case of the area of separation processes, in the problem solving sessions the students learn to design the most important operation units, but they are also an opportunity to develop transversal key competences. The combination of different kinds of problem description and software tools can be used to adapt problem solving sessions to the objectives of the students¿ outcomes required for each academic degree.
