At Monash Pilot Processes, we are dedicated to enriching student lab experiences and taking chemical engineering education to new heights. At our core is the utilization of the Pilot Plant, which serves as a pivotal platform for advancing student learning from simple projects to tackling complex, real-life chemical processing scenarios.

Our goal is to provide students with hands-on practice and experimental knowledge on pilot scale processes, as well as an understanding of the real-world limitations that chemical engineers face. Through these practical labs, students gain invaluable insights into the intricacies of chemical processing, equipping them with essential skills for their future careers.

To ensure a seamless learning experience, our team of student representatives plays a crucial role as demonstrators, engaging with undergraduate students throughout the lab sessions. Their expertise and guidance facilitate a deeper understanding of the Pilot Plant's operations and the theoretical concepts taught in the classroom.

This semester, we have meticulously organized labs for several Chemical & Civil Engineering units at Monash University. These units include:

  1. CHE1010 - Grand Challenges in Chemical Engineering

  2. CHE2163 - Heat & Mass Transfer

  3. CHE3162 - Process Control

  4. CIV4288 - Water Treatment

Our involvement in the entire developmental stage is comprehensive. From producing lab manuals to conducting trial runs, we leave no stone unturned in ensuring the labs are optimized for effective learning. Additionally, we are committed to creating educational content that complements the lab sessions, providing students with supplementary resources to enhance their understanding further.

Through our innovative approach to chemical engineering education, we aim to inspire the next generation of engineers and equip them with the practical skills and knowledge needed to tackle real-world challenges confidently. Our website offers a window into our initiatives, updates on ongoing projects, and testimonials from students who have benefited from our lab experiences.
