For the purposes of considering request for Reasonable Adjustments under the Disability Standards for Education (Cwth 2005), and Students Experiencing Academic Disadvantage Policy, academic requirements for this subject are articulated in the Subject Description, Subject Objectives, Generic Skills and Assessment Requirements of this entry.
This subject provides an introduction to process engineering, focussing work in process engineering, focusing specifically on process safety and sustainability. Material taught in other chemical engineering subjects will be reinforced via a series of assignments in which ill-defined and open-ended process engineering problems will be tackled.
Several assessment tasks combine to form a capstone project. Within this project students, in teams of three or four, perform design tasks related to the development of a waste treatment facility. This capstone project culminates in an Environmental Effects Statement assignment. Several industry speakers, from the waste and environmental areas, talk and provide content to aid with this assignment.

LEARNING AND TEACHING METHODS
Within this subject there is a mix of learning and teaching methods employed:
INDICATIVE KEY LEARNING RESOURCES
Lecture notes and relevant multimedia material are provided throughout the course (available for download from LMS). Students are expected to use the library, internet and other resources to research some of the topics themselves.
CAREERS / INDUSTRY LINKS
Depending on year-to-year availability and relevance to the various chosen projects, typically more than 10 external (industry) speakers participate in this course. Alongside providing valuable context to the projects and detailing current practice, these external speakers also outline current employment opportunities within the profession and give overviews of their particular industrial area.
