Description

This course is primarily aimed at graduates with a three-year or four-year degree with limited experience in the pulp and paper industry.

Outcomes

These course outcomes are aligned with the Australian Qualifications Framework level 8, the Bologna Cycle 1 and Monash Graduate Attributes. For more information refer to http://opvclt.monash.edu.au/curriculum-by-design/aligning-course-outcomes-with-aqf-bologna.html.

Upon successful completion of this course it is expected that graduates will be able to:

  • understand the availability of bioresources for conversion into energy, chemicals and materials in biorefineries and into pulp and paper products, in a global context
  • critically evaluate the political forces, public attitudes and ethical issues which have an impact on the utilisation of bioresources
  • develop creative solutions to minimise the water and energy resources required for biomass conversion processes and the effluent from such processes
  • understand the issues and processes associated with the recycling of paper products and the processes for removal of contaminants
  • develop creative solutions to minimise the water and energy resources required for biomass conversion processes and the effluent from such processes
  • understand biomass conversion processes and products, and product and process control, equipping them to analyse problems and develop creative solutions
