Process modelling builds on the basic conservation principles, transport phenomena,
thermodynamics and mathematical physics. We teach on how these models are being built
systematically so that we have precisely the knowledge required - neither more nor less.
Models we establish formulate many different mathematical problems that need to
be solved simultaneously in order to get an over-all solution. We learn on how to approach,
and to solve,
these problems effectively using mathematical and computer-based numerical tools.
Programming is seen as a core activity for achieving this latter goal. Examples
taken from the different corners of our discipline are the subjects of our discussions.
