A series of team and individual design exercises are used to develop a transcendence of understanding and problem solving across the elements of core chemical engineering and general engineering covered thus far in the degree programme. Designs may include gas processing, fluid storage and transport, heat transfer, separation unit operations etc. The course is supported by industry in that some of the designs are developed in collaboration with industry and the course ends with a field trip to an industrial processing plant.
|Session||Second Sub Session||Credit Points||10 credits (5 ECTS credits)|
The course aims to contribute to the development of an integrated approach to Chemical Engineering by bringing together the aspects of core chemical engineering and underpinning mathematics and science which have been (are being) studied to date in the context of a series of chemical engineering designs. In this wider context the course aims to: allow students to develop & demonstrate criticality and creativity by analyzing systems to make design choices whilst facing the challenges of uncertainty presented by incomplete/ambiguous data & information; allow students to develop communication & team working skills; allow students to apply their knowledge and problem solving skills to real problems; allow students to develop skills associated with Chemical Engineering Practice such as: the ability to find, use and apply information from the technical literature; the ability to find and apply appropriate codes of practice and industry standards.
This is the total time spent in lectures, tutorials and other class teaching.
