Process Engineering Design 3

30 points, 0.2500 EFTS
11 Jul 2016 - 13 Nov 2016


Process plant design projects.

This course provides students with a close to real world experience of process engineering.  It is built around a major design project where students have the opportunity to go through all the steps of a  real design project such as, choice of process, development of a process flow diagram, material and energy balances, development of a control strategy and a Piping and Instrumentation diagram and an economic evaluation of the project.  The major project also provides experience in working in groups, an important skill for life after university.
