Description

This is one of key courses in chemical engineering which covers methods for the quantitative analysis of chemical processes, including process optimisation and curve fitting, process modelling and applications, pinch analysis and sustainability assessment. It also includes a 1-day intensive course analysing why process engineers should engage with iwi and local communities, and some practical and effective guidelines on how to do this.

This is a 33 lecture course which builds on the materials from the 1st Professional year. It covers process and system sustainability assessment, process modelling and applications in process engineering.  It also includes in class presentations of small group analyses of chemical engineering processes.

Learning Outcomes

  • By completion of this course, the students are expected to:
  • Understand and be capable of analysing sustainability in process industry;
  • Understand and be capable of developing models for chemical process operations;
  • Understand and be capable of accounting for unit operation and overall plant material and energy balances;
  • Understand and be capable of performing optimisations for single and multiple variables with constraints;
  • Prepare and practice presenting results of their process analyses.
  • Understand how process design and operation may be viewed from different cultural perspectives and be capable of developing effective methods of engaging with local cummunity and iwi groups.and how process design and operation may be viewed from different cultural perspectives and be capable of developing effective methods of engaging with local cummunity and iwi groups.
