Prerequisite
The student should have basic understanding of Unit Operations of Chemical Engineering and mechanical properties associated with the material.
Rationale
Equipment design involves modifications and additions to existing plants or creating design layouts of plant / equipments. With rapid rate of increase in the advancement of knowledge, it is important that the students should know the relevant application for equipment design. It has been observed conclusively that practice in using the reference literature and software has helped the students to secure jobs and also to perform better in profession.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
1. Design process equipment and modify the design of existing equipment to new process conditions or new required capacity.
2. Build a bridge between theoretical and practical concepts used for designing the equipment in any process industry.
3. Create understanding of equipment design with mechanical concept.
4. Review the importance of design concepts in process industry.

Active Learning
The tutorials will be given to students which will cover entire content of the subject. The students will be required to solve all problems given in the tutorials. Some of the problems they have to solve using programming language or software. The list is given below:
1. Excel Spreadsheets
2. Polymath
3. Matlab/Scilab, etc.
