An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics and science appropriately to solve chemical engineering problems.

       I don’t really think anyone would have made it to the fifth and last year without really having enough problem solving skills such as solving and formulating equations to basic chemical engineering problems and applying different engineering techniques. One subject that requires most of your engineering skills is Process Control. I liked it because it really combines math (calculus) and various chemical engineering process and applications of this course are prevalent in the industry.

         Equipment design was another one of those subjects to test if you have fully understood and grasp chemical engineering. And last year, I was able to present my equipment. My chosen equipment was a settling tank – a primary classifier to be specific. To be honest, I had a really hard (challenging) time to look for formulas specifically made for a classifier and heuristics are also few. But I really did my best, pushed through, and was able to come up with a set of equations and specifications for my equipment.
