CHEM ENG 1010 - Professional Practice I

North Terrace Campus - Semester 2 - 2014

This course is an introduction for new students of chemical engineering and related programs to their new discipline and to their new learning environment. This introduction is made through a mix of lectures, group-based activities, site visits, and presentations from practising chemical engineers. Since a key attribute of successful professional engineers is the ability to communicate effectively, the course focuses on improving core engineering communication skills, while also accommodating students entering the course with different standards of communication skills. As part of a group you will attempt the Engineers Without Borders Challenge, which allows you to devise chemical engineering solutions to a problem faced by a specific developing community.
