Chemical engineering is the branch of engineering that deals with manufacture of products through chemical processes and the technologies of chemical production. This study field is based on combination of physical sciences, life sciences, mathematics and economics. Chemical engineering differs from chemistry because of focusing on large scales. This study field has two groups: the first group deals with chemical processes (design, manufacture and operation of plants and machinery), while the second group deals with new substances development. Graduates can work at various industries, especially oil and petrochemical industry, nuclear energy, food production, development of new sources of energy and medicine.
To provide overview and specialist training on a wide-ranging applications of nanotechnology. The module will explore the mechanisms that operate at the nanoscale and how they can be harnessed for beneficial effects in the fields such as mechanics, biology and medicine
The course is intended for officers and civilians in the Ministry of Defence, scientists and engineers from Industry and Dstl and Qinetiq.
This 6-week intensive program offers a nanotechnology lecture and a lab course in English, with site visits to 10 leading research centres, and an intensive German language course. It is directed to undergraduates of science and engineering who have completed an introduction to quantum mechanics or quantum chemistry.
The aim of this course is to show the effects of explosions on the structure and properties of materials and to give students the opportunity to examine artefacts, which have been or could have been involved in explosive incidents.
To introduce the concepts of surface engineering and how surface engineering may be used to optimise a component’s performance. To introduce suitable analytical techniques used to evaluate and characterise surfaces and thin samples.
The course will introduce the participants to state-of-art electrochemical and optical microsensor and imaging techniques and to their application in the environmental sciences.
The aim of this course is to provide the student with a thorough understanding of the explosive process.
During experiments with process equipment in semi technical scale the possibilities and limitations of the theory are compared with the practical experiences. In addition an improved understanding of the processes, equipment design, operational conditions, measuring techniques etc. is achieved. Training in industrial report writing.
The aim of this course is to provide an understanding of the science and mechanism of fire initiation and spreading and of the explosion process in condensed and gaseous systems and to give the students an appreciation of techniques used in the forensic investigation of fires and explosions.
This course is designed to introduce the student to the phenomena of pyrotechnics, and to the design of compositions and munitions.
The course starts at 24 June 2013 and is aimed at post-doctorate level: PhD students, researchers, but also at engineers working in industry. It is expected that people have a finished MSc in Food Technology, Biotechnology, Chemical or Mechanical Engineering or equivalent. We assume that the course participants will have a basis on thermodynamics. After the course, the participants should be able to conduct exergetic (and mass and energy) analyses themselves.
The aim of this course is to make the student aware of the methods of assessing risk and hazard and how they apply to the safety of weapons and explosives.
