Process Engineering

Process Engineering is an interdisciplinary field of engineering; it is the set of scientific and technological knowledge necessary for the design, operation, control, and optimization of physical, chemical or biological transformations of materials and energy. Process engineering encompasses a vast range of industries, such as chemical, petrochemical, mineral processing, advanced material, food, pharmaceutical, and biotechnological industries. The application of systematic computer-based methods to process engineering is process systems engineering. Systems engineering deals with work-processes, optimization methods, and risk management tools in such projects. It overlaps technical and human-centered disciplines such as control engineering, industrial engineering, organizational studies, and project management. Systems engineering ensures that all likely aspects of a project or system are considered, and integrated into a whole. Engineering process engineer develops a process of transformation, driving its development from laboratory to industrial scale, ensures optimal operation. The creation of this system of training is motivated by a detailed analysis of national industrial fabric which clearly shows that the genius of the transformations of materials and energy is the greatest common denominator in all industries, including industries related to petroleum refining and petrochemicals, conversion of energy, and finally to the food, water and the environment. To sum up, the project of the creation of a Department of Industrial Process Engineering in the International Institute of Technology aims at preparing Engineers with high scientific and technical level to meet the needs of the employment market. This ambition for excellence supported mainly by the largest industrial nationwide is innovative and a very essential achievement particularly in the fields of Oil, Energy, Water and Environment.

 

Objectives

To form engineers in engineering process able to integrate, at the end of their training, in different industries: oil, chemical, para-chemical, food, energy, water, environment... So, the training is based on fundamental knowledge in thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, transport phenomena, calculating reactors and especially a perfect mastery of numerical methods and computer.

 

Job opportunities

Oil, Energy, Renewable Energy, Consultants, Engineering, Consulting companies and CFD service, Chemical industries, Biotechnology, agri-food, Quality installations Conduct and supervision, Environment, Safety, Research, Process development

 

 

 

Options

The program of the common-core syllabus is intended to afford a training in Engineering of industrial processes with a global vision of the physio-chemical industry of the transformations and the energy. This training in common-core syllabus allows students to acquire different skills offering numerous career opportunities and a wide choice of jobs in national and international markets: processes, operation, maintenance, flow sequencing, scheduling. To achieve this, the training in engineering process industry has complementary optional training topics. The students are required to choose one of three options in the second year. These three options are offered each year according to the choice and demand of the students. The options are: Refining and petrochemical Thermal and Energetic processes Water and the Environment
