* Requirements

* Chemical Engineering Basics
* SimSci PRO II (any version)
* < V10 would be better to use >
* Elementary Principles of Plant Operation/Design
* No experience required - We teach you from beginning
* Knowing Mass Transfer
* Heat Transfer & Thermodynamics will be easier to understand the processes
* if you don't know them well
* don't worry . I'll teach them in very simple way .



In this course you will be introduced how the following chemical processes work and how to build  and run the basic to complex simulations step by step in  professional and  most prestigious ,world used Simulation Program ,  AVEVA PRO/II  (version 10.0) . In addition , in this course you will be shown the applications of hydraulics in the practical exercises as well as in the presentations. 

The simulation process taught in this course are with no fluff added. I respect your time and want to teach you what you need to know without bogging you down in the unnecessary details or theory. 

This is a practical course  that will take you into various process simulations and examples to enhance your learning.

In addition , the Individual Case Studies are very professional processes of real daily life . The solutions of how to model and ways of analyzing and solving the problems are shown and explained step by step at the end of every INDIVIDUAL STUDY CASE sections in order to make easier to search the mistakes of your own. 

Please note that most of the sections are directly explained in a PRO II itself to save and prevent spending your valuable time . 

 These skills will  also provide a huge boost to your resume and provide you the knowledge to confidently answer any related interview questions.

How the course is set

This course is designed for anyone who has the basic knowledge  of Chemical Engineering  and an interest in Simulation of Industrial Chemical Processes. Each section has lectures dedicated to covering the required theoretical background to the course and also has screen videos to show how the process of interest is simulated using the Schneider PRO II process simulator software. We don't just learn how to proceed the simulation , but we learn how to converge ( model and run ) simulations.

As a Process Engineer, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you to join this course , you will not regret  to do so . All the lectures are taught in zenith , clear , comprehensive and passionately  of all .

After completing this course I promise ,  you will be working on Chemical Process projects by yourself , without any aid or guidance.
