Module overview

Chemical engineering degrees are generally focussed on the skills needed to design large scale plants. Many modern applications however require processes to be fitted to existing small scale reactors with continuous processes (flow) allowing medium scale production from a small footprint (process intensification). One consequence is a greater emphasis on optimising processes in situ. This module will introduce the technology available and the design methods needed to develop processes using micro- and meso-scale flow systems including techniques such in line analysis and statistical tools such as Design of Experiments for rapid modelling and optimisation.
