A Solids Product Engineering Design Project
The design project forms an integral part of a undergraduate degree in chemical engineering accredited by the Institution of Chemical Engineers. Traditionally, the design project has been geared toward designing a theoretical, proven process to manufacture a commodity chemical. A recent design project showed that students are capable of taking an active role in an industrial design, not just of the plant but also of a product cream. Experimental measurements were taken to define product performance and to supplement the design.
