Most chemical engineering bachelor programs integrate the expertise and guidance of experienced industrial design leaders (IDLs) through the Process Design Project course. This course becomes a fundamental opportunity for students to kick-start their career and allows IDLs to share their invaluable experience. This presentation highlights the 4 key principles used by IDLs to successfully develop these future engineers in a demanding but rewarding project.
An approach is proposed to involve IDLs in specialised workshops as learning accelerator sessions that would benefit students for their design project. Topics such as how to control a process, building P&IDs, modelling with simulation software, creating HAZOPs, health & safety, and project management could be covered and would elevate the students understanding and, in turn, the quality of their project deliverables. This will not only prepare them for their projects and careers, but it is also an opportunity to develop a strong community of IDLs around their university.
