KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
UNDERSTANDING OF HEAT AND MATERIAL BALANCE CONCEPTS AND UTILIZATION TECHNIQUES IN THE IMPLEMENTATION OF OPERATION IN THE PLANTS.

AUTONOMY OF JUDGMENT:
KNOW HOW TO IDENTIFY THE TERMS OF GREATER TECHNCAL IMPACT, ECONOMIC AND SAFETY IN A PROCESS PLANT.

COMMUNICATION SKILLS:
KNOWING HOW TO EXPOSE CLEARLY AND TECHNICALLY CORRECTLY ARGUMENTS RELATED TO THE OPERATION IN A PROCESS PLANTS. KNOWING HOW TO READ A PROCESS DIAGRAM.

LEARNING ABILITY:
KNOWING HOW TO APPLY THE COMPETENCES ACQUIRED IN CONTEXTS DIFFERENT FROM THOSE TREATED IN THE COURSE.
