CL4071 - Chemical Engineering Design (Part 1 of 2)
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Science and Engineering
Except with the approval of the Head of School/Associate Dean, all subjects in a chain
must be studied in consecutive teaching periods.
Conceptual development of an industrial process from the initial feasibility study
to final commissioning of the plant. Development of ability to make and assess informed
technical and operational decisions based on sustainability criteria. Development
of skills in literature review, literature analysis and use of technical data in alternative
scenarios. Development of the mass and energy balances around plant units. Computer-aided
design and costing of unit operations. Preparation of engineering documents and drawings.
Safety, risk and environmental assessment of industrial plant. Site layout and economics
of the developed process. Preparation of a final design document.
- apply broad sustainability criteria to contextualise, compare alternative choices
and evaluate the performance of, a large-scale chemical operation;
- undertake technical design and analysis of chemical process equipment;
- synthesise and design control and safety measures in a complex process;
- work together as a group to carry out complex multi-layered design tasks.

As this subject is part of a subject chain, a final
standard grade (e.g. P, C) will only be recorded
for each subject after successful completion of all
parts of the subject chain.
