The Lifetime Edge: What Every Graduate Should Know About Industrial Process Safety | AIChE

The Lifetime Edge: What Every Graduate Should Know About Industrial Process Safety

Sunday, October 29, 2017,
8:00am to 5:00pm

Every graduating chemical engineer will practice process safety. Your students will have an edge if they are familiar with industrial practices upon graduation. These practices are useful from laboratory to pilot to full-scale. There are commonalities that when taught will give new graduates the tools they need to begin to make an impact immediately.

Presenters at this workshop will discuss these commonalities and their approaches to teaching them. They will present their experiences and provide their materials for attendees to build upon at their universities. Attendees should expect presentations and group activities covering topics, tools, outcomes, successes and challenges. They will leave with a better understanding of industrial practices and effective materials used to teach and evaluate student learning.
