Control engineering and optimization


Catch the opportunity to acquire knowledge in Control Engineering and Optimization!
This is a two-day course for development-, production-, or process engineers.

During the course you will gain:

  •  ability to analyze and simulate various process engineering control problems,
  •  knowledge of different optimization methods,
  •  insight into the use of optimization tools for process automation.


Target group 

Development-, production-, or process engineers.

Total scope 
2 days
No. of seats 
Course language 

The course provides a short repetition in control engineering. It also aims at expanding previous knowledge as well as providing knowledge in optimal control. In conjunction with the exercises, you can apply the knowledge by solving process engineering problems and optimization problems.  

The lectures (L) are mixed with supervised computer exercises (E) where participants gain experience in optimizing chemical engineering processes. Day 1 ends with a social activity with the purpose of widening the professional network.
