Unit of study_

Process Design - CHNG3801

Year - 2018

This unit of study teaches principles of particle technology and solid separation process required for chemical and biomolecular engineering. It runs after CHNG2801 (Fluid Mechanics), CHNG2803 (Heat and Mass Transfer) and CHNG2806 (Separation Processes) to provide students with the tools and know-how to tackle unit operation tasks related to chemical engineering. It also includes project-based study components including a research project on fluidisation of solid particles, a dyer design project and a lab session on chromatograph. The integrated course structure helps students to develop a physical understanding of particle technology and solid separation process and gain the ability to solve problems of engineering significance.

Classes

Courses that offer this unit

Non-award/non-degree study If you wish to undertake one or more units of study (subjects) for your own interest but not towards a degree, you may enrol in single units as a non-award student. Cross-institutional study If you are from another Australian tertiary institution you may be permitted to undertake cross-institutional study in one or more units of study at the University of Sydney.
