On successful completion of this module you will be able to...

critically evaluate the fundamental difference between continuous and batch processes, critically assess the conditions for their successful application in different process industries, practical awareness of health and safety issues in chemical processes, critical assessment of trade-off between design and operating parameters, critically assess the role of system dynamics in controlling the process.

On successful completion of this module you will be able to...

strengthen your skills in handling dynamic reaction and separation processes; develop deeper and practical understanding of solid-gas interactions, enhancement of rate of reaction and calculation of kinetic parameter; achieve a deeper understanding of controlling processes; understand the effect of changing operating and design parameters on the performance of the process (in terms of productivity, quality of products); develop skill of using computational tools for simulating process flowsheet.

On successful completion of this module you will be able to...

develop data interpretation, analysis and systematic problem solving skills in a team for dynamic and steady state processes.
