Reactor Design and Control Project (RDCP) - CE2-03-2
The aim of the project is to integrate knowledge gained from CE2 Reaction Engineering I and CE1 Chemical Engineering with CE2 Process Dynamics and Control and apply this to the design of a reactor for chemical conversion with an appropriate control structure.
Further aims are to become familiar with the control systems simulations package Simulink and to gain proficiency in the use of MATLAB for real reaction rate equations and numerical integration. Simulink will enable study of dynamic effects on control of the reactor designed in this project. This project will also provide reaction engineering experience applicable to the final year design project.

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
