Principles of Process Engineering (ENG298)

School School of Engineering and Information Technology
Credit Points 3
Availability MURDOCH: S1-internal
Teaching Timetables Murdoch S1
Description In this unit students implement the knowledge gained in basic sciences to engineering applications through drawing flowcharts of a process, performing mass and energy balance calculations and applying these steps to industrial cases. Enhancement of problem solving skills is a major emphasis throughout this unit.
Unit Learning Outcomes On successful completion of the unit you should be able to:
1. Identify and explain most unit operations.
2. Identify different process variables and perform engineering calculations.
3. Perform material balance analysis for non-reactive processes.
4. Perform material balance analysis for reactive processes.
5. Estimate physical properties.
6. Become familiar with Equations of State.
7. Perform energy balance analysis for non-reactive processes.
8. Perform energy balance analysis for reactive processes.
9. Perform simultaneous material and energy balance calculations.
10. Perform a problem analysis properly.

Timetabled Learning Activities Lectures: 1 x 3 hours per week; workshops: 1 x 2 hours per week.
Unit Learning Experiences The learning activities in this unit are very much related to the lectures and workshops, class discussions, assignment, and tests. It is expected that through these activities, the students will gain a familiarity with process engineering and analysis. All the assessment components will be individual.
Other Learning Experiences The Unit is intended to require a commitment of about 8-10 hours per week. This involves attendance at the lectures and workshops, use of computer laboratory (if necessary) and consultation with your coordinator and tutor, as well as additional time for independent study to cover course content, exercises and assignment and preparation for the weekly tests. These are average times spread out over the 15 week semester.

Assessment To master the problem solving skills students are required to practice continuously and the assessment components are designed for this purpose. The students will be assessed on the basis of: Assignment, Workshop Exercises, In-class Tests and Final Examination. The assignment contains problems associated with the concepts taught in this unit. The weekly workshop exercises reinforce the concepts covered each week. The students need to hand in at the beginning of each workshop the assigned exercises for the week. Short tests are carried out during lecture time in weeks 2 to 13 on the topics covered in the lectures. Final exam contains questions and problems based on the topics covered in the unit.
Prerequisites MAS182 Applied Mathematics or MAS161 Calculus and Matrix Algebra; CHE140/PEC140 Introduction to Chemistry or CHE144/PEC144 Chemical Principles or ENG192 Energy, Mass and Flow.

Internet Access RequirementsMurdoch units normally include an online component comprising materials, discussions, lecture recordings and assessment activities. All students, regardless of their location or mode of study, need to have access to and be able to use computing devices with browsing capability and a connection to the Internet via Broadband (Cable, ADSL or Mobile) or Wireless. The Internet connection should be readily available and allow large amounts of data to be streamed or downloaded (approximately 100MB per lecture recording). Students also need to be able to enter into online discussions and submit assignments online.
