SummaryThe industrial project in Chemical Engineering can be undertaken by MEng students in their final year. It consists of a piece of original technical work in chemical engineering or a related discipline within an industrial context. The scope of industrial projects depends on the individual project - some are based on production facilities and involve investigation of plant operation, modelling and analysis of performance, others are laboratory based involving experimentation, others are purely theoretical, some are a blend of all these elements.

The student carries out substantial project involving them in independent analysis of a problem, and giving them a degree of responsibility for defining the scope and conduct of the project and as well as actually doing the work in an industry setting of approximately six months duration.

The work is then assessed by means of a poster presentation and a report, both in the second semester.
Course description Students work for a minimum of 23 weeks with an industrial sponsor starting normally in June or July and returning to the University of Edinburgh for the second semester. A named academic supervisor will oversee the project, day to day supervision when away will be the responsibility of a named industrial supervisor.
