The program will assist graduates who are seeking a career in the process industry as well as to enhance existing career prospects and technological knowhow of process development professionals. The program has been designed considering future aspirations of the Global and Sri Lankan process industry which is moving towards a ‘circular economy’ as follows:
To achieve these ambitions, the program focuses on the development of sustainable processes in terms of new processes and revamping or retrofitting existing sub-optimal processes. Simultaneous integration of safety, energy, environmental, and sustainability aspects, and process analysis and design aspects supplemented with R&D and management will be considered as key areas of study. Theoretical knowledge and practical skills are complemented with project work as depicted below.
The course units are carefully designed so that the key pillars of the sustainable process industry are ‘mastered’ by the students upon completion of the program. The graduates are expected to play a key role in regional industrial development initiatives (chemical, food, water services, energy services, cement, pulp and paper, textile, water treatment, biotechnology, plastic, agricultural industry, etc) where a wide range of opportunities are available. Further, graduates will be eligible for admission to PhD studies in any foreign university.
