Aims

The detailed design of a chemcial process requires a combination of many of the core skills acquired over the three 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 exercise. This is applied to a typical client specification and requires to be innovative in suggesting a design solution.

It is a requirement for membership of the Institute of Chemical Engineers that all graduates successfully complete a design project. At the end of the project students will have translated a business, safety or environmental need into a design solution.
