Chemical engineering is at the heart of much of the chemical, oil, gas, and petrochemical industries. The chemical engineer is interested in the transportation and transformation of solids, liquids and gases, but must also be familiar with many of the other engineering disciplines including mechanical, electrical and instrumentation. Of specific importance are separation processes including distillation, heat transfer, hydraulics and fluid flow, reaction engineering, but also process control and economics. These are the fundamental principles of chemical engineering.
This programme considers the areas of chemical engineering that are most commonly encountered, and will provide an understanding of the fundamentals to the non-specialist, and a refresher to practising engineers, with examples that will be drawn from a range of process industries including oil and gas processing, petrochemicals, chemical manufacturing.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Practising or lapsed chemical engineers wanting to refresh their fundamental knowledge
All those working in the chemical, petrochemical, oil and process industries with a need to understand and discuss fundamental chemical engineering and technology issues with the chemical engineering specialists or other professionals
These will include geo-scientists, petroleum engineers, production engineers, trainee process engineers, R&D chemists, plant chemists, plant operators, EHS specialists and economists
Case studies and examples will cover a range of levels, making the programme also suitable non-technical staff.
