CHEM ENG 4034 - Professional Practice IV

North Terrace Campus - Semester 1 - 2015

The professional practice of chemical engineering, and related disciplines, relies on a broad range of discipline-specific and transferable professional skills. In this course, advanced topics in the professional practice of chemical engineering are studied. These elements relate to an understanding of the business environment facing professional engineers and include advanced project management, the management of human and physical resources, optimization, decision-making and an introduction to business management strategies such as "Six Sigma" or "Lean Manufacturing". Advanced topics in process safety and sustainability are also included. In this course students will undertake a series of workshops, lectures, projects and case studies.
