An Introduction to Chemical Engineering Science

2 November 2020 14:00 - 5 November 2020 17:00, United Kingdom

We are now delighted to offer this course VIRTUALLY, this three day course has been divided up into FOUR afternoon sessions and then an additional three optional modules to further your knowledge in Chemical Engineering.  The course will be delivered virtually via an on line platform and there will be an opportunity for interactive sessions and questions to the tutors.

The Four day sessions will take place on the following dates and times UK time, information on the modules is listed below

Monday, November 2nd | 2.00pm – 5.00pm, GMT
Tuesday, November 3rd | 2.00pm – 5.00pm, GMT
Wednesday, November 4th | 2.00pm – 5.00pm, GMT
Thursday November 5th | 2.00pm – 5.00pm, GMT

R&D scientists are often at a disadvantage when working in process research and development because of their lack of knowledge about the basic principles of chemical engineering, and the impact of decisions regarding process yield and selectivity on up- and downstream operations. Other branches of engineering face a similar disadvantage when considering the whole process.

This course has been developed, and is presented, by chemical engineers and chemists who specialise in facilitating knowledge transfer and understanding between different scientific and engineering disciplines working at the R&D-manufacturing interface. As a result, it does not dwell on the derivation of mathematical formulae or equations used in chemical engineering design, but instead focuses on what other disciplines need to know about the information and data that chemical engineers require for design, scale-up and process troubleshooting.

Chemical engineering without mathematics is impossible, but this course presents only relevant mathematics at a level that should not trouble anyone with a numerate scientific degree.   Other disciplines do not need to know how to design plants or equipment and this course does not attempt to teach this. The course focuses on understanding chemical engineering principles to promote clear communication between disciplines, facilitating information and knowledge transfer.
