  • EG-206 Instrumentation Measurement and Control

    This module covers the fundamental operating principles behind the various types of measuring instruments, pumps and valves in common use in the processing industries, and the criteria for correctly selecting and specifying them. Concepts of process control in terms of architecture and control modes are covered from a mainly qualitative point of view as well as analogue and digital signal types.

  • EG-230 Process and Pilot Plant Operations B

    This module supports and amplifies lectures by providing practical experience of process equipment, its operation and performance. The Unit Operations Laboratory (UOL) experiments are carried out in pairs. The module involves a range of activities to enhance team work, report writing and time management skills, as well as developing further the understanding of subjects covered in taught modules.

  • EGA332 Process Equipment Selection and Control

    Newly employed graduate process engineers need to be able to perform a wide range of fundamental process engineering calculations. This module will focus on ancillaries to main process equipment, with emphasis on pump selection, line sizing and pressure drop, pressure relief calculations and utilities.The module also builds upon topics covered in EG-206 (Instrumentation, Measurement and Control) to further develop students understanding of process automation with specific emphasis on the quantitative aspects of process control.


  • Advanced manufacture by screen printing (current)

  • Improving the manufacturing processes of stencil printing polymer microneedles (current)

    Other supervisor: Dr Natalie De Mello
  • Key to the realisation of smart packaging is the development of appropriate sensors, coatings and integration with electronics. This project will research appropriate sensors for food spoilage, complimentary active coatings and then their integration with chipless RFID. This project will also address the scale up to volume production. Gravure printing is seen as the most likely candidate process for this technology, although the offset and flexo printing will be included in the assessment process. (current)
