The department is organizing a 2-day course consisting of 4 modules, from 1-2 December, 2019. The course will highlight a new class of software tools and their application to tackle current and future needs of chemical, petrochemical, biochemical and related industries. The course is divided into 4 modules, which can stand as individual topics. Examples will highlight industrial problems.
