Teaching process modelling in chemical engineering

Perspectives from academia and industry

The goal of this workshop is to discuss the different ways process modelling is taught in universities and how this aligns with the needs of industry. In this context, we consider process models to imply both flowsheet models and first-principles models (balance equations and constitutive equations, see graphic below). The workshop is meant to improve awareness of the respective requirements of academia and industry and to facilitate new graduates' effective transition into industry and research. A variety of universities and companies will present their perspectives in this 1-day workshop to be held on Tuesday 30 April, in London, UK at University College London.

The day will end with a preview of teaching material that was developed with the help of the PSE Academic Advisory Board.
