(106e) Preparing Chemical Engineering Students for the Digitalization of Tomorrow – Integrating Modelling across the Curriculum
AIChE Annual Meeting
Monday, October 29, 2018 - 9:12am to 9:30am
The Department of Chemical Engineering at University College London has successfully implemented an Integrated Engineering Program (IEP) where modelling is integrated across the entire curriculum, rather than being covered in a single course in the junior or senior year. To support the integration, PSE has developed and provided training material, exercises and tests through the Process systems engineering Academic Teaching Highway (PATH) initiative. The material is modular in nature and covers the typical fundamental topics from a modelling perspective and are supplementary to existing course material. We will reflect on the implementation and delivery of the new curriculum over the past four years, and how the PATH material has supported the students' learning, ultimately preparing them for a digital future.
