Elective Modules (Level 4) - Chemical Engineering

Analytical Instrumentation (15 credits) - HNC Chemical Engineering  / HGHNC-OL

Analytical Instrumentation (15 credits) - HNC Chemical Engineering / HGHNC-OL

Description

This module is concerned with modern techniques of detecting variables in industrial processes. The aim of these techniques is to ensure that the measurement or sampled quantity is representative of the process conditions. The module also aims to develop an understanding of modern measurement principles and recognition of how these concepts are applied in the design of commercial instruments for the measurement of both analytical and chemical composition variables.

Assessment
Evidence will be provided from a single component of assessment comprising four elements equally weighted, in the form of assignments.

Element 1, 2 and 3 consists of a small number of questions 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.

Engineering Applications (15 credits) - HNC Chemical Engineering  / HGHNC-OL

Engineering Applications (15 credits) - HNC Chemical Engineering / HGHNC-OL

Description

In this module students identify individual tasks, activities, or programmes of work, whether administrative, theoretical, practical or supervisory, that they have undertaken as part of their daily working lives and show how those activities have contributed to their professional engineering development. In so doing the module requires that the student document key aspect of the development to date and to critically appraise their career journey, identifying areas of their experience that may be under-developed and producing an action plan for their ongoing professional development.

Assessment
One single component of assessment, comprising four equally weighted elements, in the form of an in-course assessment comprising short project style reports of approximately 500 words each that detail the professional development activities that the student has undertaken in the workplace and show how each activity has contributed to the student’s progress and the advancement of their abilities in engineering; technically, managerially, and personally.
