To translate a business, safety or environmental need into a design solution.
Detailed design within the chemical and material processing industries, requires a combination of many of the core skills acquired during the first years of a degree programme. It represents a unique exercise in which students can apply and test their knowledge of process selection, conceptual design, equipment design, process safety and sustainability and economic analysis as part of a team, whilst working in industry. This is applied to a problem as defined by the company they are working for.
Outline Of Syllabus
Design of part of a process, whilst working in industry, to satisfy a given specification.

|Guided Independent Study||Independent study||1||198:00||198:00||Investigation of design options and preparation of material for reports|
Teaching Rationale And Relationship
The large private study element in this module reflects the fact that the development of a design comes from many hours spent investigating design options either privately in an office or out on plant. The tutorial time is spent with design supervisors either in a one-to-one meeting or via e-mail, or receiving answers to specific questions and feedback on reports that have been submitted.
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners

Assessment Rationale And Relationship
The assessment is a summative appraisal of a student’s understanding of chemical engineering and ability to apply knowledge and skills to an open-ended design problem addressing a typical client specification.
Milestone 1 - Oral presentation. Assessed report, problem definition, feasibility study and process selection. Set week 1.
Milestone 2 - Report on engineering design of processing and ancillary equipment including, control, safety assessment, plant layout, P&I diagram etc..
Milestone 3 - Presentation of the design to design group supervisors and industrialists. Week 13
