This course is an introduction to process/product engineering and design in which the technical, environmental, social, economic and marketing aspects involved in the manufacture of products ranging from everyday consumer goods (food, pharmaceuticals, etc.) to water and industrial chemicals are examined. Students will be taught to determine material and energy inputs and outputs for production as well as use of flowsheets and other graphical representations. Issues with respect to the sustainability, safety, engineering profession and careers are introduced, Laboratory, Pilot Plant or Industry visits will be incorporated into the course to reinforce understanding of the manufacturing process. Students will also gain skills in information literacy via accessing and analysing sources of engineering and chemistry related information.
