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.
Learning OutcomesKnowledge Outcomes- Be capable of unit conversion commonly encountered in engineering- Understand and be capable of developing models for chemical process operations.- Design heat exchangers for process applications- Understand and be capable of performing optimisations for single or multiple variables with constraints.- Understand and be capable of analysing sustainability in process industry.- Understand how process design and operation may be viewed from different cultural perspectives and be capable of developing effective methods of engaging with local community and iwi groups.- Understand who our mana whenua are in the Canterbury region (including social structure, values, historical and current situation).- Understand and propose effective engagement strategies with Māori, including familiarity with tikanga MāoriTransferable skills- Independent problem solving- Team working and interpersonal relation - Communication of complex idea to peers- Managing tasks timely not to cram- Handle stress during treating with real world problems under time pressure- Simple economic analysis - Approaching problems rationally- Sourcing necessary information, data, literature, equipment, and materials
