Colloid and Interface Science - CENG97018
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.
Product Characterisation - CENG97025
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.
Discovery Laboratory - CENG96010
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.
