|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 10 (Year 4 Undergraduate)
||Availability||Available to all students
|Summary||Chemical Engineering Design 4 covers the general area of Chemical Engineering Design, introducing a level of detailed practical and industrial information about standards and practices in design work. Most of the lectures are delivered by academic staff but in some specialised areas talks are delivered by invited industrial speakers.
In addition to formal lectures, a large part of the learning takes the form of continuously assessed exercises, undertaken either on an individual or a group basis.

| On completion of the course the student will be able to do the following:
1. Communicate the output of the design process in formats approaching industrial practice, such as Piping and Instrumentation diagrams, equipment sketches and specification sheets;
2 Select appropriate equipment ranging in complexity from pumps and pipework to large-scale integrated equipment such as compressors and distillation columns.
3. Apply control theory learned in other parts of the syllabus to the control of large integrated plants.
4. Consider designs from the point of view of startup and shutdown as well as steady-state running.
5. Assess the level of protection required by plant from extreme operating conditions, conduct relief cases and size relief valves and bursting discs.
