ERT 428/4 BIOPROCESS PLANT DESIGN 2
This course requires student to work in a pre-determined group to solve a practical and industrially relevant design problem in the same way as might be expected in an industrial situation. The scope of the class is to develop and evaluate process alternatives via rigorous simulation, perform equipment sizing, optimise various process units, analyse the safety and environmental impact of the process, estimate capital and operating costs, and assess plant profitability to meet desired project needs within realistic constraint. The use of modern engineering design practices, tools and product/solution development process, trouble-shooting methodology, learn and utilise a realistic simulation of the real-world design process, engineering analysis and synthesis through their projects Knowledge integration from other Bioprocess Engineering courses is required to identify, solve, and design solution for complex engineering problems.
Ability to conduct engineering analysis and adeptly apply principles and tools of mathematics and science to solve multi-facetted design project to produce credible conclusions.
Ability to formulate and produce solutions that properly address critical issues and assumptions that are conceptually and contextually valid and meet client expectation.
Ability to design component, equipment, process, plant and systems in bioprocess engineering using engineering tools and design softwares for optimum performance.
Ability to display understanding of bioprocess engineering project and integrate the design for manufacturability, utility and sustainability.
Ability to write project report that conforms to engineering professional standard and to perform verbal presentation on the project.
