In this subject, students undertake a comprehensive, individual research project on a chemical engineering topic under the guidance of an academic supervisor. The project may be experimental, simulation-oriented, theoretical or industry based. Each student will be introduced to the methods and conventions of engineering research, formulate a research plan to meet the project’s objectives, conduct a literature review into the research topic, apply appropriate methods to collect and analyse data, discuss the findings in the context of the established literature, and then draw conclusions and make recommendations with respect to the project’s objectives. The results are communicated through regular journals, meetings and reports.
