Abstract

This study introduces CDIO concept in Separation Processes course. It was offered for Diploma of Chemical Engineering students, UiTM Pasir Gudang. The concept was applied through LLE laboratory work, where students were given specific tasks that comply with CDIO standards. The effectiveness of CDIO implementation was evaluated through survey questions. The data available suggested that students had a fun learning experience as compared to the conventional method of teaching. They agreed that this course is the most difficult course for their level of study. They gained greater depth of knowledge as they were exposed to the real chemical engineer roles in industry through this activity. CDIO concept was proven to be successfully implemented in Separation Process. It is highly recommended that this approach to be enforced in other courses in chemical engineering program.
