PROCESS SYSTEMS DESIGN - 2022/3
Module code: ENGM073
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic the University has revised its courses to incorporate the ‘Hybrid Learning Experience’ in a departure from previous academic years and previously published information. The University has changed the delivery (and in some cases the content) of its programmes. Further information on the general principles of hybrid learning can be found at: Hybrid learning experience | University of Surrey.
We have updated key module information regarding the pattern of assessment and overall student workload to inform student module choices. We are currently working on bringing remaining published information up to date to reflect current practice during the academic year 2021/22.
This means that some information within the programme and module catalogue will be subject to change. Current students are invited to contact their Programme Leader or Academic Hive with any questions relating to the information available.
This module addresses the design principles and methods for process systems comprising reaction and separation (including water utilisation) sections.

The assessment strategy is designed to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate
- Understanding of scientific principles, methodologies and mathematical methods associated with process systems design, as well as the ability to formulate and solve particular process systems problem in the final examination. The coursework tests and amplifies awareness and ability to formulate and solve a practical problem in engineering.
Thus, the summative assessment for this module consists of:
- Coursework – 40%, 15 hrs (LOs 1, 2)
- Examination – 60%, 2 hrs (LOs 2, 3, 4)
Formative assessment and feedback
- Formative verbal feedback is given during the problem solving classes.
- Formative feedback on coursework is given verbally and available on SurreyLearn to provide feedback on understanding of design process and respective problem formulation and solution.
- The objectives of the module are to develop a systematic understanding of the following areas:
- General methods and procedures for process synthesis and design;
- Conceptual design of reactive systems;
- Conceptual design of separation systems;
- Integrated reaction-separation systems design;
- Pinch analysis and network design for water reuse.

Methods of Teaching / Learning
The learning and teaching strategy is designed to:
- Introduce principles of selecting appropriate design techniques and design decision making process and their implementation and use through theory and worked examples. This is mainly delivered through lectures and problem-solving activities.
The learning and teaching methods include:
- 2 hours lecture per week x 11 weeks
- 1 hour tutorial x 11 weeks
- 2 hours revision lectures
Indicated Lecture Hours (which may also include seminars, tutorials, workshops and other contact time) are approximate and may include in-class tests where one or more of these are an assessment on the module. In-class tests are scheduled/organised separately to taught content and will be published on to student personal timetables, where they apply to taken modules, as soon as they are finalised by central administration. This will usually be after the initial publication of the teaching timetable for the relevant semester.
