OverviewThe course requires students to design an experimental program, to perform the experiments and to analyse the subsequent data from a range of practicals relevant to typical processes/unit operations found in the process industries. These include classification, crystallisation, distillation, filtration, fluidization, heat transfer, mass transfer, milling, process control, reaction kinetics and thermodynamics. The focus is on comparing theoretical descriptions and empirical data with experimentally observed phenomena. Students are required to present findings, as individuals and in groups, both orally and in the form of concise technical reports.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
