Purpose and objectives:

The purpose of the STEM Introduction to Process Engineering course is to enable students to take on the role of a process control engineer in a real-world scenario. The course explores, educates, and challenges students with the basic skills associated with process control.

Particularly target: Students from 12 – 18 years old

Knowledge:

Science

  • Flow, volume, and pressure
  • Capacitance
  • Ultrasonic sound
  • Digital and analog

Engineering

  • Designing mechanical drawings, electrical schematics, and process and instrument flow diagrams
  • Evaluating current designs and selecting design changes, resulting in improved processes.
  • Completing standard engineering forms
  • Exploring how system properties, forces, and restraints affect flow behavior.

Technology

  • Windows-based graphical user interface
  • Control software application
  • Mechanical instrumentation
  • USB controller
  • Electronic sensors

Skills:

  • Identify and define process control engineering and how automatic control systems impact their daily
  • Use the basic skills required for the reading and drawing of electrical schematics, mechanical drawings, and piping and instrumentation (PI) flow diagrams.
  • Demonstrate how flow and pressure are measured both manually and electronically and how valves and pumps work using a closed loop fluid system.
  • Connect, configure, and operate hardware and software required for automated control including selecting and applying various sensors.
  • Discuss the logic of control (PID) and make conclusions while examining real system data output.
