CHEE6000A

Advanced Chemical Engineering Project A

10 Units

This course provides students with the opportunity to undertake an advanced chemical engineering project either within their work environment or on campus. There is considerable scope available for choosing a suitable project. The suitability of the project is judged according to a set of project criteria listed in the Course Contents. The academic supervisor must first approve the project before the student commences.

Students must attend and pass the WH&S laboratory induction requirements before attending labs.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  1. Carry out an advanced research project in the field of chemical engineering
  2. Demonstrate capstone level capability in research techniques such as critical literature reviews, evaluations of previous work in the area, and development of an integrated research program
  3. Work individually on a complex problem
  4. Prepare an advanced Research Thesis, clearly demonstrating the ability to synthesise research outcomes into the wider discipline context and to critically analyse one¿s own data
  5. Deliver an advanced level Research Seminar that clearly articulates, for example, the hypothesis of your research, the experimental approach and a discussion of your data in the context of previous work to a broader technical audience
Content

Each student is required to:

  1. Develop a research proposal after discussions with the supervisor and consulting relevant literature on the topic of the research related to chemical engineering or similar.
  2. Prepare a critical literature review of the research topic, clearly identifying the knowledge gap the proposed research will address.
  3. Prepare a plan of experimental and/or computer work and carry this out, with modifications as the results of the work progress.
  4. In certain projects, experimental equipment is designed and developed by the student.
  5. Submit a final Thesis which incorporates the results and conclusions of the research carried out in a scientific, logical and ordered manner.
Multi-Term Sequence This course is part of a multi-term sequence. Both Part A and Part B must be completed to meet the requirements of the sequence. Part A and Part B must be completed in consecutive terms. Students must complete Part A before completing Part B. Students must complete the sequence within a twelve month period. If students complete Part A but are unable to complete Part B within the timeframe, they must re-enrol in Part A.
Assessment Items
  • Written Assignment: Literature Review
