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.

CHNG3809: Laboratory and Industrial Practice

This unit of study provides an opportunity for students to gain experience in the operation of process plants and pilot plants. In particular students will have the opportunity to apply chemical and biomolecular engineering fundamentals to real world problems including distillation, heat transfer, fermentation, filtration, crystallisation and reverse osmosis. The unit will give students experience with examples drawn from the petrochemical, minerals, biotech, pharmaceutical and water industries. In addition the unit will also give students an additional opportunity to apply the knowledge of experimental design, data analysis and statistics.
