Description The integrated industrial placement of one year’s duration aims at the provision of opportunities to see how theoretical and academic work completed within the university environment relates to the practical application in the workplace; enabling students to develop confidence over a significant period of work in skills of organisation, time management and record keeping; and, permitting students to take on gradually more responsibility for the work that they do, so that by the end of the year’s placement they are capable to complete a simple element of work from beginning to end with minimal supervision.
Learning Outcomes By the end of the module students should be able to:
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the role of Chemical Engineering professionals within a company and the interactions that normally take place with other disciplines;
  • Apply technical knowledge in a commercial context at an appropriate level for the student's qualifications;
  • Demonstrate the standard of professional presentation and reporting skills required in industry and commerce;
  • Work as a Chemical Engineering professional in a commercial environment, demonstrating a professional and responsible attitude;
  • Work both independently and as an effective team member.
