During 2021 we will continue to support students who need to study remotely due to the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 and travel restrictions. Make sure you check the location code when selecting a unit outline or choosing your units of study in Sydney Student. Find out more about what these codes mean. Both remote and on-campus locations have the same learning activities and assessments, however teaching staff may vary. More information about face-to-face teaching and assessment arrangements for each unit will be provided on Canvas.

CHNG1108: Introduction to Chemical Engineering

This unit introduces students to the profession of chemical engineering. It gives students an appreciation of the variety of tasks for chemical engineers. Students will be able to design, build and test their own laboratory-scale prototype. In addition, students will gain skills in project presentations, scientific literature searches and essay writing. The unit will also feature student led interviews of real-life engineers.
