Module overview

This group project enables you to apply your conceptual engineering and science knowledge to a chemical engineering design problem. The ideas are developed through detailed design, experimentation, computer modelling and/or manufacture.

You will need to consider different design alternatives and will have to justify your choices. You will also consider and manage wider aspects such as the (a) social, (b) economic, (c) political, (d) legislative, (e) environmental, (f) cultural, (g) ethical (h) and sustainability issues related to the subject matter of the project. Working in groups you will meet regularly with your supervisor and any external sponsor, develop your team working, plan your project, present your work through meetings with your supervisor and sponsor and also prepare and submit reports and oral presentations.

You will consolidate your project management skills. At all times you will monitor your progress as a team to ensure you are achieving the objectives set and ensuring quality of output.
