Major projects are carried out by teams of 4 to 7 undergraduate students in chemical engineering from the Faculté de génie of the Université de Sherbrooke, under the supervision of professor engineers.
Major conception projects
A chemical processing design project requires a host of advanced skills. Chemical engineering students learn these skills! Give them the mandate and they will work as a team to benefit your project.
During the bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering, students must work as a team on a major project. Each member of the team will invest 450 hours of work, representing 1,800 to 3,100 hours of student expertise. Based on your needs, the team will develop feasible solutions and actively participate in the various stages of chemical processing design.
To be eligible, a project must require work equivalent to the preliminary engineering of a plant or part of an existing or developing industrial process. Note that preliminary market analysis, site selection, environmental and life cycle impact analysis and economic analysis are part of these design projects. For the complete list of criteria, contact the supervisor.
The team of students take on the work free of cost but the business or organization must ensure the follow-up of the project.
The projects must be submitted in September. The teams work on the project in the Winter and Summer trimesters. The projects are delivered at the end of August.
The teams of students are based in the main campus of the Université de Sherbrooke, but projects can come from anywhere in Quebec.
