The Technical Report course is a year long independent research project in which third year Chemical Engineering Technology students complete their project under the supervision of a faculty member. Students prepare a research plan, analyze the data and and present the results of laboratory research experiment to their peers and faculty mentors through a poster or presentation.
This year’s Chemical Engineering Technical Report Showcase took place on Thursday, December 10th
Each project group had the opportunity to be available for questions in their own breakout rooms. And during this time, judges circulated through the groups evaluating the project presentations, asking questions and determining the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prize teams.
Projects titles included:
Cross Current Liquid Liquid Extraction
Effect of Impeller Diameter on Gas Dispersion within a Stir Tank Reactor
Operation of an Anaerobic Bioreactor for the Production of Ethanol
Recovery of Airplane Deicer through Vacuum Distillation
Operation of an Electrolytic Cell
Optimization of a Gas Absorption Column with Two Packing Materials
One of OACETT’s requirements to obtain a professional designation is to complete a technical report. Technical Report 1 is offered to students in their third year of Chemical Engineering Technology and Chemical Engineering Technology -Environmental. Students in Chemical Engineering Technology complete an experimental proposal based on their research topic. During their 6th semester, students complete the experiment they design, and present their results in a final research paper and poster presentation.
