Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Chemical Production Scheduling

In this project, you will explore the science of manufacturing and how to organize a chemical plant on a high-level such that all of the batches and tasks that are being run are optimized. This entails scheduling operations in a timely manner while also maximizing the revenue and minimizing the costs of production. You will explore the effects of optimal scheduling on products and demand specifications while analyzing the sensitivity of the profits on raw materials/inputs. Prerequisites No prior coding skills are required, but you must be interested in learning how to develop algebraic formulations from real-world problems.

Coding skills

Matlab, Aspen, AutoCAD, GAMS
