3 Study Guidebook This guidebook has been compiled for students that study at Åbo Akademi University in the Master s Degree Programme in Chemical Engineering. Its purpose is to give information about available courses, the study structure and about certain procedures. 1 The Faculty of Technology The Faculty of Chemical Engineering was founded in 1920, and had two professors and few students at that time. The Faculty has expanded a lot since those days and now has more than 20 professors, more than 200 teachers and researchers and a total of about 1300 students. The faculty changed its name in 2006 to the Faculty of Technology. The Faculty has two Departments: The Department of Chemical Engineering (Kemisk-tekniska avdelningen, KT-avdelningen) and The Department of information Technology (Avdelningen för informationsteknologi, IT-avdelningen). The decisions at the Faculty are made by the Dean and the Faculty Council (in Swedish fakultetsrådet), and the Department Council (in Swedish avdelningsrådet), which are elected for three years at a time. They consist of professors, teachers, researchers and students representatives. The Dean is the chairman of the Faculty Council. The Department Council makes e.g. the following decisions: - Coordinates and organises the teaching - Evaluates the theses The laboratories that take part in the programme are: - Analytical Chemistry AK Axelia I 2 nd floor (Analytisk kemi) - Heat Engineering VT Axelia I 3 rd floor (Värmeteknik) - Industrial Chemistry TK Axelia I 2 nd floor (Teknisk kemi och reakt.teknik) - Industrial Management IEK Axelia II 3 rd floor (Industriell ekonomi) - Inorganic Chemistry OOK Axelia II 4 th floor (Oorganisk kemi) - Organic Chemistry OK Axelia II 4 th floor (Organisk kemi) - Paper Coating and Converting PaF Gadolinia 4 th floor (Pappersförädling) - Physical Chemistry FyKe Gadolinia 3 rd floor (Fysikalisk kemi) - Polymer Technology TPK Axelia II 4 th floor (Teknisk polymerkemi) - Process Control RT Axelia I 3 rd floor (Reglerteknik) - Process Design & System Engineering AST Axelia II 3 rd floor (Anläggnings- och systemteknik) - Fibre and Cellulose Technology FCT Gadolinia 1 st floor (Fiber- och cellulosateknik) - Wood and Paper Chemistry 3PK Gadolinia 5 th floor (Trä- och papperskemi) (The abbreviations above are taken from the Swedish names of the laboratories) 1.1 The academic neighbourhood Åbo Akademi University is located in Åbo/Turku, the oldest city in Finland, close to the medieval Cathedral and many of the University s buildings are situated along the street Biskopsgatan. The Department of Chemical Engineering operates in two buildings: Gadolinia and Axelia (Axelia has two parts: Axelia I and Axelia II). Axelia I is the older part at the street Biskopsgatan and Axelia II is the newer part situated behind the older part. The two parts are connected to each other. You can find a map over the campus at the address https://www.abo.fi/student/media/2060/campuskarta2007a4.pdf 1.2 Registration for the study year In order to maintain their status as students at the university all students at Åbo Akademi University have to notify the Student Office of Åbo Akademi whether they are present or not for the study year. This should be done at the beginning of September, and is carried out every study year. The Student Office is located in a building called Gripen (Tavastgatan 13). 1
4 Certificates and copies regarding study achievements and other study related issues can be obtained from the Student Office in Gripen or from the Faculty Office located in Domus (Biskopsgatan 10). To obtain the examination certificate (Master of Science (Technology), please contact the Head of Student Affairs at the Faculty Office. 1.3 Faculty reception hours Head of Student Affairs Ulla Bäckström can be met at the Faculty Office (TkF: s kansli) in Domus, Biskopsgatan 10, from Monday to Thursday at or by mutual agreement, telephone , Faculty office Domus, Biskopsgatan 10, Åbo. Open and Office secretaries Maria Hertell-Jalava, telephone , (study register) and Mary-Ann Hamberg-Ahola, telephone , (coordinator of the exams). Programme information relevant information can be found on the Internet: Examinations Exams usually take place on Wednesdays during the whole study year. Students should register for exams at least five working days before the day of the exam; e.g. if the exam is on Wednesday, registration should be done one week before. You can find the exam dates for the majority of the MPCE courses on pages in this guide. The registration is done on the address for all courses that are in the course database MinPlan (they have course codes that contain 6 digits). For other courses the enrolment lists can be found on the organising laboratory s notice board, which is situated near or in the laboratory s facilities. The students are usually not allowed to bring all the course material to the exam, please see the course descriptions Allowed accessories for more information. You should always check with the course lecturer what material is allowed in each exam. The examination during the general examination day is four hours. There is often, however, an exam separately organised at the end of each course, in which only the course members can participate. The lecturer together with the students sets the date. The results of the exams are posted on the notice board of the laboratories. Normally they are posted no later than two weeks after the exam. There are only three opportunities to take an exam in the same course, after that the course lecturer should be contacted and the matter discussed. Registering for an exam counts as one of these three times even if the student does not show up at the actual exam occasion. The results of the courses are stored in Åbo Akademi s study register (STURE). An unofficial transcript can be requested on the Internet at the following address: https://www.abo.fi/personal/minsture/. Log in with your user name and password, fill in your student number in the empty field and click the button next to it. A transcript is then sent to your address. If several weeks have passed since the course finished but the result is still not in the register, contact the lecturer of the course. Official transcripts can be requested from the Student Office (Tavastgatan 13) or from the Faculty Office (Biskopsgatan 10). The exams are usually held in three lecture rooms: Axel and Stina, situated in Axelia I, and auditorium A, situated in Gadolinia. On the day of the exam, a list is posted outside each of these auditoriums telling in which auditorium each student should be. Further instructions concerning the Examination procedures can be found on page Degree Certificate The student has to check that all studies needed has been done and registered in the study record. The Thesis is approved by the Department Council after the language check is completed. The degree is given by the Dean usually once a month during the periods. The student has to inform the Head of Student Affairs about taking out the degree at least one week in advance. 2

They can be purchased from Monday to Friday from , telephone Study programme Åbo Akademi follows the so-called Bologna reform concerning studies and credits. According to the new degree structure starting in 2005, the studies will be measured in credits (cr (sp)) (in Swedish studiepoäng, sp). The programme has a large variety of courses. Each student has to make an individual study plan within May for the next study year with the computer program MinPlan, located at The Master s Programme in Chemical Engineering has three major subjects: Process chemistry (AK, FYKE, OK, OOK, TK, TPK) Process systems engineering (AST, RT, TK, VT) Pulp and paper technology (3PK, PaF, FCT) The programme has a total duration of two academic years and accounts for 120 cr (sp), of which 30 cr (sp) is for the Master s Thesis. 2.1 Academic year The academic year is divided into four periods, two during the fall and two during the spring. These are the dates for the periods for the academic year : Period I: Period II: Period III: Period IV: The structure of the studies Master s Thesis (30 cr (sp)) Advanced studies (30 cr (sp)) Minimum 20 cr (sp) in major subject Intermediate studies (20 cr (sp)) Optional studies (15 cr (sp)) Compulsory module (20 cr (sp)) Language studies (5 cr (sp)) The programme starts with compulsory studies consisting of a compulsory module (20 cr) and language studies (Swedish 5 cr). Information about the language courses can be read on the website of the Centre for Language and Communication at The compulsory module represents the three specialization areas in the programme and contains the following courses: 4 Principles of Process Engineering, 7 cr Principles of Chemical Reaction Engineering, 5 cr Wood and Fibre Chemistry, 5 cr Academic Writing, 3 cr
7 After the compulsory studies the students select intermediate study courses according to their own interest. A minimum of 20 cr of intermediate studies is required. A minimum of 30 cr of advanced studies is required minimum of 20 cr within the subjects that belong to the major subject and 10 cr optional courses from other subjects. At least 6 cr have to be taken from the laboratory for which the Master's Thesis is undertaken. Additionally, there is a module of optional studies (15 cr). These studies can be any courses at Åbo Akademi, for example courses in languages, economics, and intercultural communication or additional courses within the Master s Programme. The Master's Thesis work accounts for 30 cr and is started in the second or third period of the second academic year. The Master's Thesis work is done for one of the participating laboratories. Contact a professor at the laboratory to discuss the Master s Thesis. 2.3 Examination procedures The faculty office manages most written examinations at the Department of Chemical Engineering centrally. Certain procedures have been created to ease the management of the examinations. This document is intended to explain these procedures and give you instructions about what you should do when you intend to take part in a written examination. Preparations The key to good grades is learning and preparation. Take part in lectures, read the material assigned for the course, do the exercises, ask questions and try to understand not only the details but also the general picture. Your preparations will naturally be different depending on the type of exam and on what you are allowed to bring to the exam. Enrollment You have to enroll for the exam in MinPlan. The enrollment begins one month before the exam and closes 5 work days (usually one week) before the exam. Registration for examinations in MinPlan Log on to MinPlan (http://www.abo.fi/minplan) Go to My Registrations (Mina anmälningar) which is the second tab to the right. Then choose Exam registrations (tentamensanmälningar), which is the tab in the middle Go to Find new exams (Hämta nya tentamina) in the left-hand menu Look for the course you would like to take the exam in. Look e.g. on the course name or code and press Search (sök) When you find the course you are searching for, choose the course by ticking the box beneath the Choose (Välj) column and then press Add (Lägg till) Make sure that the column Date of examination (Tentamensdatum) on the left shows the date for when you want to take the exam. Press Register/Enroll (Anmäl) for the course on the right date The following text will appear up to the right: [message] (meddelande): [Registration complete] (Tentamensanmälan utfördes) Some exams are not found in MinPlan. The enrollment list will then be placed on the notice board of the laboratory that arranges the course. You have to write your name and student number on the appropriate enrollment list no later than 5 work days before the exam (Wednesday at 13:15). If you intend to take part in two exams at the same day you must write an to containing information about which two exams you would like to take part in. You must also enroll for both exams in MinPlan. When and where The centrally managed exams are always arranged on Wednesdays. They start at 13:15 and end 4 hours later. They are usually arranged in auditorium Stina and Axel in Axelia and in auditorium A in Gadolinia. Find out where these places are! 5
8 You can find out which auditorium you will be in from lists posted on notice boards at the entrance to each of the auditoriums mentioned above. What to bring to the exam You should bring your own writing material and paper to write on as well as a calculator to all exams. You may also bring a dictionary. To some exams you are allowed or required to bring some specific material needed for the exam the course teacher will specify the material. To some exams you may bring any material with the exception of solutions to exercises and solutions old exam questions and to some exams you may bring all material. You may of course not use any kind of communication equipment like mobile phones or portable computers with wireless LAN. Rules in the exam room There are a number of rules you must follow during the exam. - Mobile phones must be turned off - You may not leave the exam room during the first hour (before 14:15) since others are allowed to arrive up until that time - You must sit at the place you have been assigned. The supervisor has a map with the sitting order. - If you take two exams simultaneously you must turn in your answers to the first exam before you get the papers for the second exam. You may choose which exam you want to take first. How to write the answers Begin by labeling the papers you write your answers on. All papers you return must at least have your name and student number on them. The supervisor has a box with printed labels that you can use. Attach the label on the top of the first page by wetting it like a postage stamp. You report your answers or solutions to the exam questions in the same way as you do in exercises. Write clearly and explain what you do. Turning in the exam papers After you have completed your work you check again that you have written your name and student number on all papers you intend to return. Leave your papers on the place where the supervisor tells you. Checking the results The teacher has two weeks time after the exam to go through and grade your exam papers. The results will then be posted on the notice board of the laboratory that arranged the course. The lists usually contain your student number only as identification and your grade as a number. The grade is either not approved or a number between 1 (lowest) and 5 (highest). Some courses are graded only as approved or not approved. You can also check your results in the student database through the Internet on the address: https://www.abo.fi/personal/minsture/ First you are asked to log on to the system. Use your normal username and password. You then write your student number in the assigned box and click on Beställ. You can choose to order the form in both English and Swedish.
