CME2030 : Chemical Engineering Laboratory I
- Offered for Year: 2017/18
- Module Leader(s): Dr Eileen Yu
- Lecturer: Dr Sharon Velasquez Orta, Dr Fernando Russo Abegao
- Owning School: Engineering
- Teaching Location: Newcastle City Campus
|Semester 2 Credit Value:||10|
This module allows students to study important chemical engineering principles in the laboratory. The experiments demonstrate important concepts from the Fluids, Heat Transfer, Thermodynamics, Dynamics & Control and Mass Transfer modules, and Heat exchangers. It provides students necessary knowledge and practical skills, including basic laboratory practice and safety, and lab report writing.
Outline Of Syllabus
Students will complete and write reports on an experiment from each of the following areas: Transfer Processes, Control, Reactor Engineering, Separation Processes, Heat Exchangers, Thermodynamics and Renewable Energy.

Assessment Rationale And Relationship
Assessment is used to measure the understanding and the acquired practical ability students gain in understanding and carrying out experiments.
During the semester each group (of 2 students) will complete 8 labs (6 lab practicals and 2 computer based).
As labs are completed students record data and results in their lab books. This will be checked and signed as formative assessment.
Students will then be allocated four major reports to write up. Major reports are to consist of maximum 5 pages including diagrams and charts.
Students are required to achieve a pass mark (40%) to successfully complete this module. A student failing the module will have to resit for the module.
