Found of Energy and Fluid Systems (CHNG5703)


To recognise that chemical engineers are involved in creation of products and processes, in manipulating complex systems, and in managing technical operations To develop an appreciation of the practical application of concepts and tools to real design problems in the process, product and service sectors in which chemical engineers are engaged. To consider this through three project-driven case studies covering a range of integrated analysis scenarios, from the domain of energy and fluid systems. In addition, there will be considerable time spent during the semester on advanced topics related to energy and fluid systems and associated technological developments.
