Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

Process Engineering Design 2 covers the aspects of product and process design to produce commercially valuable products and commodities. Important aspects of design including product and process selection, process economics, process safety, process simulation and optimisation, and detailed process equipment design will be covered. Design teams of 3 to 4 students will be issued with a brief to develop a product and design the process to mass produce this product. The product and process must be safe, sustainable, and economic. Principles of chemical, biochemical, and environmental engineering will be utilised in the develop of the product and design of the process.

The paper has three lectures per week, and two 2-hour lab sessions. One lab session will be a practical lab used primarily for product development, with the other being a computer based lab used for simulation and spread-sheeting. Please note that laboratory classes start in the first week of semester and are an essential part of the course. The paper announcements, materials and assessments are communicated and managed using Moodle.
