Industrial internship/research project - CE4-01-1
To allow students to gain an opportunity of working at an in-depth level on an industrial or scientific problem area.
Introduction to MATLAB - CE1-03-4
This course introduces the software application Matlab as an environment for technical computation. It seeks to introduce students to the key features of the software, to general and transferable computational principles, to the Matlab programming language in particular and to applications in Mathematics and Engineering.
Knowledge Laboratory - CE2-03-3
The aim of the module is for students to develop a mind-set for problem solving through experiential and practical based learning in order to tackle the challenges they may face as chemical engineers in industry.
Molecular Modelling of Fluids - CE4-33
The goal of this course is to provide students with the background and skills needed to appreciate and understand the application of molecular theory and simulation in modelling fluids and fluid mixtures. Some of the theoretical fundamentals (statistical thermodynamics, distribution functions, perturbation theories) and modern computational methods (Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics) will be developed in lectures and applied in a number of case studies to be carried out during the timetabled sessions.
The specific objectives of the course include:
• An understanding of the basis of statistical thermodynamics as applied
to fluid systems.
• The development of the statistical associating fluid theory (SAFT) as an
advanced molecular-based equation of state for the thermodynamic properties of complex fluid mixtures.
• An understanding of the modelling of fluid phase equilibria of mixtures
with equations of state.
• An exploration of the role of modern molecular-simulation techniques in
modelling the thermodynamic, structural and dynamical properties of fluids
