- Our Pilot Chemical Laboratory contains fifteen pilot-scale rigs, which over a wide range of unit operations. The Chemistry Laboratory has bench-scale experiments providing you with the fundamental skills realting to various aspects of basic chemical and process engineering.
The objectives of the Chemical Engineering programme are:
- To build engineering skills of critical importance when working in industry, including the ability to break a complex engineering problem into its component parts, to sketch/model engineering solutions, to work in a multidisciplinary team, to be able to understand and prepare technical reports and to be able to present your work in a clear and concise manner.
- To provide students with a solid background in the design and analysis of chemical and other processes.
- To build awareness of current design practices through the use of the latest engineering standards
- To build critical awareness of the advantages and disadvantages of different design approaches when facing an engineering problem, including aspects such as environmental constraints, economy, ethics and health and safety.
