Description

This course will introduce the students to the chemical engineering laboratory environment and process safety. It will also build on the professional skills introduced in ENGR101 such as sketching, ethics and report writing.

1. Laboratory skills – exposure to chemical process equipment and working with experimental apparatus
2. Professional skills – Computing with Excel, Visio, technical drawing, engineering report writing, library skills
3. Process Safety – an introduction to chemical and physical hazards, important industrial accidents and the concept of hazard vs risk.
4. Electrical systems relevant to chemical engineers

Learning Outcomes

After passing this course, a student is able to:
LO1: Demonstrate engineering sketching and technical drawing skills including CAD and understand how engineering components are represented graphically. Obtain an appreciation of the design process and manufacturing including material selection.
LO2: Exhibit familiarity with some electrical concepts relevant to the process industries.
LO3: Understand and apply introductory concepts such hazard identification and preliminary risk analysis required to assess the safety of industrial processes and the laboratory environment.
LO4: Conduct chemical engineering experiments on laboratory and pilot-scale equipment in a team situation and analyse the results quantitatively using statistical tools and computational packages such as Excel Solver.
LO5: Write engineering reports analysing and discussing experimental results following the style typical of the chemical process industry

In Semester 1, the course focuses on technical drawing (sketching, technical drawing conventions and CAD) and basic chemical engineering concepts (uncertainty analysis and report writing). Students will attend several laboratories to become familiar with industry typical equipment.

Semester 2 contains three laboratories, where concepts from other courses will be revisited in a laboratory environment. Students will be able to practice report writing. In addition, process safety and electrical systems relevant to chemical engineers will be introduced.

All labs must be attended to pass the course. All lab reports must be handed in and completed to a satisfactory standard to pass the course.
