Webinar: Electrochemical Engineering Education - What is the Future?

Webinar: Electrochemical Engineering Education - What is the Future?
  • Date From 14th July 2020
  • Date To 14th July 2020
  • Price Free of charge, open to all.
  • Location Online: 08:30 BST. Duration: 1.5 hours.


Despite the significant role of electrochemical engineering in a variety of industrial processes, education of the subject in undergraduate courses remains patchy. Whilst there are more Masters level courses due to the interest in energy systems, the enthusiasm in embedding this within earlier UG years is lower. In this webinar we wish to convince our viewers that electrochemical engineering contributes towards a chemical processes such as electrodialysis or electrocoagulation, environmental cleanup, energy generation, as well as water remediation.

Electrochemical processes may become more important due to pressure on minimising our carbon foot print, as well as future “electrification” of processes industries. To enable and foster this vision we may need to embed electrochemical engineering principles in UG curriculum within the usual core chemical engineering subjects such as thermodynamics, kinetics, reactor engineering, etc. This webinar will explore means and ways to do so, and discuss the possibility of forming a special interest group.
