|Semester 1 Credit Value:||25|
|Semester 2 Credit Value:||25|
To acquire detailed knowledge of a processing system and its underlying science and technology
To develop an integrated approach to chemical engineering
To apply chemical engineering principles to industrial scale processing equipment
By completing this module you will demonstrate the broadening and deepening of your chemical engineering knowledge that has occurred as a result of the year that you spent in industry
Outline Of Syllabus
Chemical and Process Technology of commercial production processes.
Process safety in an operational environment.

Teaching Rationale And Relationship
The high proportion of Fieldwork and private study reflects the fact that the majority of the learning on this module will be as a result of the student working in industry. Students learn about the chemical process they are working on during a working day (8 hours). Private study will provide them with understanding of the technology underlying the process. Part of the private study time is devoted to completing a diary in which they record the work they have completed each week.
The tutorials refer to time spent with the industrial tutor when he visits students at the company where they are working.
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners
|Prof skill assessmnt||2||M||25||Assessment completed by Industrial Supervisor; set Semester 2, week 14|
|Reflective log||2||M||75||Reflective log and knowledge acquired report; set Semester 2, week 14. Max 60 pages|
Assessment Rationale And Relationship
The knowledge acquired report is an opportunity for the student to demonstrate the deepening of their chemical engineering knowledge. It is written in the style of a textbook and contains an account of the entire processing system that the student has been working on and the underlying process technology. The diaries that the students keep during the year in industry, provide supporting evidence for the report.
The supervisor’s assessment is a questionnaire completed by the industrial supervisor at the end of the student placement. It asks about the student's technical and practical ability, their management skills, ability to work with others and their ability to communicate. Supporting evidence for the questionnaire is provided by the company appraisal.
