Tutor, Final Year Design. (Undergraduate)

Strategy of Design - CENG96004


The aim of the course is to introduce students to structured approaches to the design of chemical processes. Through the course, students develop an understanding for the drivers for decision-making in process design, develop strategies to generate good designs quickly despite limited and uncertain information, and gain an understanding of the tools that support process design.

Advanced Process Optimisation 1 - CENG97009


This advanced course covers state-of-the-art optimization based techniques for process synthesis,
process design and molecular design. Emphasis is placed on mathematical modelling via mixed
integer and continuous optimisation formulations. Within the course framework the students will
also learn how to use GAMS, a modelling/optimisation software system. Through the course, students
gain an awareness of advanced topics such as deterministic global optimisation and molecular design.
