Engineering Megatrends and the Elements
Chemeca brings together chemical engineers from Australia, New Zealand and other countries who will gather to share their insights and innovations relevant to chemical engineers across the wide range of industries we work in.
The theme for 2019 is Engineering Megatrends and the Elements. The traditional chemical engineering paradigms, upon which most existing chemical engineering programs and approaches are based, have been unit operations, transport phenomena, and process control. These have enabled industry, research, and education in chemical engineering to provide the kind of resources, materials and technologies that have become the ubiquitous underpinning of our everyday lives around the world – so much so that we often take them for granted.
As the fourth industrial revolution progresses, what will be the next chemical engineering paradigm? How will the significant challenges facing the world today, the emerging megatrends in engineering and our roots as a discipline in manipulating and combining the fundamental chemical elements drive the development of the next chemical engineering paradigm?
