15 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: Much of engineering involves designing, undertaking and analysing the results from experimental studies. This module gives students a chance to do so using the Diamond Pilot Plant and other unit operations experiments as the test bed. Core to the design and analysis is a sound grounding in applied statistics which will be covered as part of this module. Student teams will be given open ended laboratory investigations. They will design experiments and visit the lab on several occasions to collect data for analysis. Results will be presented as both written and oral reports.
