Chemical Engineering Virtual Lab

Augmenting state-of-the-art labs with virtual reality and simulation technologies to enable deep learning

The Department of Chemical Engineering partnered with the Centre for Extended Learning to create a 360o virtual tour of our continuous distillation pilot plant with high-fidelity process simulation and multimedia.

The result is an educational resource that permits versatile and interactive exploration of the content by students at various levels in the Chemical Engineering Program. Different elements (text, diagrams, embedded video, interactive knowledge checks, process simulation, virtual exploration of components and parts, and design exercises) combine to create an authentic learning experience that accommodates all learning styles.
