Exchange of energy is the fundament of process plants. A fundamental understanding of how these energy changes are related to mass exchange and fluid flow is a necessity for the processes, whether it is processes that involves several phases and chemical reactions or changes in conditions of a single phase. The Separation is offered by University of Bergen's.


Key facts

It is a goal that candidates from this specialisation should be able to analyze different unit operations with respect to energy- and flow conditions, and be able to combine processes in complete process plants in order to meet specific demands for quality and economics. As part of these goals strong focus is on estimations of thermodynamic data, physical properties and phase transitions by means of industrial methods as well as more fundamental approaches like molecular simulations and modern theories from statistical mechanics.

University of Bergen's Separation Master's programme in separation gives a broad basic understanding of current challenges in the field. The work with the master thesis involves analysing measurements and evaluating the results in light of the hypotheses that are tested. The study will give experience with oral and written presentation of results and theories, and training to read and evaluate relevant scientific literature.

Programme Structure

  • be able to analyze various unit operations with respect to the energy and flow conditions and could put together processes in process facilities to meet certain requirements
  • understand how one can estimate thermodynamic data, physical properties and phase transitions using industrial methods and more fundamental approaches such as molecular simulations and contemporary theories from statistical mechanics
  • know the principles for the design and optimization of process facilities
  • know the principles of modeling necessary thermodynamic properties that are central to industrial processes
  • exhibit a fundamental understanding of processes in nature and industry which are unable to reach equilibrium and an ability to establish modelling strategies for these processes
  • a fundamental understanding of thermodynamically controlled prosesses in sediments and reservoirs related to natural gas hydrates
