Core Modules (Level 5) - Chemical Engineering

This level of study consolidates learning and enables students to start increasing the breadth and depth of their knowledge. These modules include the skills and knowledge required to deal with advanced design processes, as well as developing the students’ analytical and investigative skills.

Core Modules (Level 5) - Chemical Engineering

Mass Transfer Operations (15 credits) - HNC Chemical Engineering  / HGHNC-OL

Mass Transfer Operations (15 credits) - HNC Chemical Engineering / HGHNC-OL

Description

This module enables the student to develop an understanding of basic theories of mass transfer and phase equilibria and to be able to specify and design equipment for mass transfer operations such as distillation, gas absorption, liquid extraction and leaching processes.

Assessment
Elements 1, 2 3 and 4 consist of a small number of questions (typically 4-6) which require a blend of short descriptive answers including the reproduction of diagrams; numerical calculations requiring the interpretation of technical descriptions and the identification and use of relevant formulae, tables and charts.

In addition, element 1 also involves a small industrial based case study (typically 100-200 words) via which the student can demonstrate the application of knowledge gained to-date in this module

Project (20 credits) - HNC Chemical Engineering  / HGHNC-OL

Project (20 credits) - HNC Chemical Engineering / HGHNC-OL

Description

This module presents the opportunity for students to use the knowledge and skills they have developed at work and in their programme of studies, in the definition, management and completion of a work-related project, including the presentation of their findings to an appropriate audience. The module thereby aims to integrate the skills and knowledge developed in other modules of the course within a major piece of work that reflects the type of performance expected of a higher technician at work.The student is advised to study this module until last and is advised to use a ‘real’ project based on their own workplace where this is possible.

Assessment
One single component of assessment comprising three equally weighted elements:

  • Element 1 comprises a logbook or project diary documenting the progress of the project
  • Element 2 comprises a project report of approximately 3000 words
  • Element 3 oral presentation of the project 5-10 mins
