For universities delivering IChemE accredited courses, keeping the curriculum broad and relevant has long been seen as a challenge.

Heads of Chemical Engineering UK along with the Education SIG are pleased to present a series of four workshops with industry and academic representatives, focusing on the themes of Biochemical Engineering and Digitalisation/Industry 4.0. These workshops will focus on the challenge of maintaining accreditation alongside developing graduates ready for changing employment opportunities.

This workshop will have speakers from academic and industrial backgrounds focusing on the theme of Biochemical Engineering.

Attendees will be able to consider what employers need today’s graduates to understand, as well as seeing how some universities are embedding these topics within the curriculum. As part of this event there will be discussion of how industry and academia can work together to produce useful teaching and learning resources for chemical engineering students.

This workshop is aimed at academics and chemical engineers within industry keen to explore how the chemical engineering curriculum can be kept relevant and what students should be trained in to fill the technical skills gap.

Discussion in smaller groups will look at what resources are already available (either openly or on request) and what resources could be developed for universities to integrate biochemical engineering concepts into traditional chemical engineering curriculum.

Given the online format, the workshop will be capped at 25 registrants to ensure the workshop is as interactive as possible.
