Process Dynamics and Control - CE2-06
Process Dynamics and Control provides an introduction to the transient behaviour of processes, and the means by which this behaviour can be described mathematically, analysed and controlled. A related course CE2-03.1 Process Control Project provides practical hands-on experience involving the use of a real-time control system to control a simulated process.
Final Year Plant Design Project - CE4-01-2
The Design Project has the objective of giving students experience of advanced design practice by carrying out a complex design task in as realistic a way as possible. The desired learning outcomes include producing a comprehensive design in response to an open-ended brief, while working in a large team, under realistic time pressure and on the basis of limited information.
The main aims of the Design Project are to help students:
• develop skills in complex design problem-solving including technical, safety, environmental and economic aspects
• develop skills in the effective management of work and decision making in large groups
• develop skills in the presentation (oral and written) of complex techno-economic results
Modelling of Biological Systems - CE4-21
This course is offered as an option in the 4th year of the undergraduate programme, as well as the MSc programme . Specifically, this module aims to interlink the biological principles of cellular physiology (in normal and diseased states) with the mathematical tools required for their analysis and modelling. This course links with knowledge acquired in the “Fundamentals of Biotechnology” and “Dynamic Behaviour of Process Systems” modules. The course presents both relevant background biological knowledge, as well as modelling tools and approaches, illustrated in a range of topics. It is especially relevant to students with interests in Biomedical or Biological Engineering, as well as students with interests in systems engineering, or modelling in general.
