209 CHEMICAL ENGINEERING COURSE The course for the Diploma covers one session and may be taken after the final Sc examination by students who have devoted their undergraduate course primarily either to Chemistry or to Engineering Its exact nature is varied in accordance with the previous training of the student The object is to train the student in the scientific principles of chemical processes on the industrial scale and to introduce him to the general methods and apparatus employed in industry The course is provided by close co-operation between the Department of Chemistry and the Faculty of Engineering whose staffs deal with those aspects of the work which are more particularly of purely chemical or engineering nature respectively Thus graduates in Chemistry receive the necessary training in such subjects as Engineering Drawing the mechanical properties of materials production and transmission of mechanical and electrical energy and the determination of the efficiencies of the more general types of mechanical and electrical plant whilst Engineering graduates devote an equivalent amount of time to further instruction in suitable branches of Chemistry The part of the course common to both classes of students deals with Chemical Engineering operations and processes Fundamental operations common to number of chemical industries are studied from the point of view of plant construction energy requirements and efficiency of operation Ex- amples are given in the design of typical units of plant and instruction is provided in the preparation of quantitative flow-sheets both for materials and energy in the calculation of costs and in the general principles underlying the location and layout of works In appropriate cases students may spend further period in carrying out research work for the University of London degrees of Sc Sc Eng or Ph in Chemical Engineering In order that close touch shall be maintained with industry arrangements are made for lectures to be delivered during the course by representatives of chemical manufacturers plant manufacturers industrial research departments and similar organisations Visits to selected works form an important feature of the course during term time The Course is recognised by the Department of Scientific and Indus- trial Research for the award of Advanced Course Studentships
