COURSE NAME INDUSTRIAL INORGANIC CHEMISTRY
COURSE CODE: SCT3073
NAME(S) OF ACADEMIC STAFF: DR FARAH WAHIDA HARUN
RATIONALE FOR THE INCLUSION OF THE COURSE/MODULE IN THE PROGRAMME: Industrial chemistry deals with commercial production of chemicals and related products from natural raw materials and their derivatives. It enables humanity to experience the benefits of chemistry when we apply it in the exploitation of materials and energy. The goal of studying industrial chemistry at university is to try and bridge the gap between classical chemistry and chemistry is applied in industry. This subject focuses on the inorganic industrial chemistry as an important branch of industry and its structure usually centres on various inorganic chemicals to be utilized in fertilizer, construction materials etc. It also addresses the needs of students to broaden their knowledge of the inorganic process industry as a whole.

CREDIT VALUE: 3
PREREQUISITE (IF ANY): NONE
OBJECTIVES: 1.   Classify the chemical industry in terms of products, raw materials, scale and types of transformations.

2.  Discuss the inorganic chemical theory and its application in industry.

3.  Discuss with the help of relevant flow diagrams, equations, operating conditions and equipment principles, the manufacture of selected industrial inorganic chemistry.

LEARNING OUTCOMES: Upon successful completion of this course students should have the ability to:

1.     Elaborate the basic chemical process involved in the production of major commercial products in industrial Inorganic chemistry. (LO1 – C5)

2.     Display the ability to describe the operation and solve problems relating to the production process in industrial inorganic chemistry, written and verbal. (LO4, – P4, CS3)

3.     Demonstrate the ability to work in group to produce a report related to the production process in industrial inorganic chemistry with integrity and good ethics (LO5 – A4, TS3, LO7 – A4, LL2)

TRANSFERABLE SKILLS: Students should be able to develop good written and interpersonal communication, team work and leadership, problem solving, planning and organizational skills through a process of lectures and SCL sessions.
TEACHING-LEARNING AND ASSESSMENT STRATEGY: Teaching-learning strategy:

  • The course will be taught through a combination of formal lectures and group work using authentic materials, informal activities, various textbooks and website materials. The use of examination and internal reporting assessment will assess the student’s ability to apply theoretical concepts in context.

Assessment strategy:

  • Formative
  • Summative
SYNOPSIS:

 

The course is aimed at providing students a background in industrial chemistry as applied to real-world applications. It focuses primarily on industrial processes used in the production of major primary bulk chemicals. Industrial chemistry will also examine the current economic and environmental consequences of expanding industrial activity.
