Course Objectives The aim of the course is to become familiar students with the most common methods used in a research work. The project may be Literature Review or Computer Aided Design or Laboratory Work based on experimental or theoretical study in which the students are required to integrate and apply the fundamental knowledge gained in all of the previous courses to practical research.
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Use the fundamental science, mathematics and engineering backgrounds to solve a chemical engineering problem.
  • Compose the knowledge and/or to design or to simulate a process or a part of process.
  • Plan an experimental study, and/or to relate experimental data or generate relationship in chemical engineering area.
  • Prepare poster and oral presentation and submit a thesis in English.
  • Perform a working discipline in a specified program context.
Course Content Student who are at their 7th and 8th semesters, or at their last semester will perform the research work for the Graduation Project; the topics are suggested by the faculty members, and the project is carried out under the supervision of a multidisciplinary faculty team; the students may come up with the multidisciplinary project topic themselves, and seek a team of faculty members for guidance as well.
