Teaching

 

Process Safety and Environmental Issues in Chemical Engineering

In this course, students cover contemporary safety and environmental concerns as they impinge on the practising engineer, the legal and regulatory background to engineering activity, to ensure safe operation of hazardous processes, and the procedures to be followed in seeking a license from the environmental protection agencies for the operation of processes involving prescribed substances. Generation, propagation and the fate of pollutants discharged to the air, to water and to the ground are discussed along with means of mitigating emissions by elimination, substitution and pre-discharge treatment are considered. Methods of identifying process hazards are introduced leading to risk assessment and consequence analysis using hand calculation methods are presented to allow risk assessment and its application to the process industries to be appreciated.

This course discusses the synthesis, characterisation and application of nanomaterials used in Chemical and Biomedical Engineering. The course is open to 4th and 5th year students, plus PhD students are also welcome.

Nanomaterials in Chemical and Biomedical Engineering

Study Projects

In this course, 4th year undergraduate chemical engineering students write a literature review on a topic given by the academic supervisor. The academic supervisor teaches the students on writing literature reviews and often these reviews are published in international peer-reviewed journals. See examples under the 'Publications' part.
