Overview

Description

Chemical engineering is a branch of engineering science that deals with physics and chemistry applied mathematics and economics to generate, convert, transport and use chemicals and energy. This ties in with process plant design from a practical and functional perspective as the delivery of liquids alone is as critical as understanding chemical engineering as an industry professional. 
Chemical engineers apply their chemistry and engineering skills to transform raw materials into utilizable goods, like medicines, fuels, chemicals and plastics. They are also involved in research. They also design and perform experimental researches to make new and better customs of production of chemicals, controlling harmful effects, conserving the resources. 
The main aim of this course is to ensure students understand the technical concepts involved in chemical engineering with plant layout, process and piping design contextualization. This course will also help the students to acquire knowledge on chemical engineering theory and concepts with practical examples for context and applicability.

Instructor

Dr Srinivas Shastri

PhD, MBA, BSc(Eng)

Srinivas has worked in a variety of roles ranging from process engineering to academia and has gained experience in a number of areas. He has worked across cultures in India, Singapore, New Zealand and Aaustralia.

Srinivas started off as a process engineer and then moved to industrial research culminating in the development of a model of the complex hydrometallurgical process of hydrogen reduction of nickel. as a research engineer, Srinivas worked on an optimization solution for a refinery in Singapore before embarking on research into alarm Management. The software was successfully implemented in a large refinery, and the research group has spun off into a company. In a faculty role, he had the pleasure of mentoring and developing young engineers while continuing to build strong links with industry. Entering the alternative energy industry, he led the modelling effort of the shale to liquid process and significantly contributed to the design of a 115,000 bpd commercial facility.

Srinivas is currently developing, in addition to traditional process engineering support, areas of alternative energy technologies, scoping studies, and is actively involved in Business Development.
