Colloid and Interface Science - CENG97018

Aims

For the students to become experts in the fundamentals of colloid and interface science: specifically to understand the nature of the various interparticle forces, how they can be calculated and applied. To understand the origins of surface tension, how surface tension can be modified by the addition of surfactants. To know the nature of the different classes of surfactants, and how they modify the properties of interfaces, be they solid, liquid or gas. Finally an example of how colloidal phenomena are actually applicable in industry namely oil extraction is given.

CENG40003 First Year Design Project - CE1-03-1

Aims

In the first-year Design course, we introduce students to problem solving and group work, both of which figure in the activities of a professional engineer.  This is achieved by introducing students to the different type of problems they are likely to encounter.

Our aims are to make students better able to: 

 define problems and responsibilities; 

 distinguish between different sorts of problems; 

 deal with design problems for which there are many solutions by identifying the data needed to tackle the problem, and generating, evaluating and presenting solutions; 

 work as a member of a group by contributing effectively, sharing work and involving all members of a team.

Product Characterisation - CENG97025

Aims

Modern process industries are increasingly focussed on value added product engineering including foods, pharmaceuticals, personal care products, advanced materials, and other formulated products. An integral component of product engineering is the ability to describe the critical engineering and chemical attributes of the final product. This course is designed to provide students with up to-date knowledge and experience in current experimental techniques for product characterisation. Following completion of this course, the students will be able to recognise the most relevant technique of choice to analyse a product (including its limitations and benefits). At the end of the course, the students should be able to demonstrate a broad knowledge of current methods for structured product characterisation, and be familiar with the
areas of their applicability.

Lecturer

Discovery Laboratory - CENG96010

Aims

The aim of the Discovery Lab is for students to further develop the skills acquired in Foundation and Knowledge labs with emphasis on the design – analysis – evaluation cycle.  Focus is not on following a pre-defined procedure to generate experimental data, but rather on solving an industrially relevant problem or delivering a set target by exploring an experimental space.   The Discovery Laboratory serves as a bridge between performing pre-defined teaching experiments and engaging in open-ended research.
