Plant visit is required for better understanding of the industry. You must be able to conduct your plant visits from November to December 2011.

VII. SCHEDULE OF ACTIVITIES for Part II (to follow)

VIII. HANDLING OF THE COURSE In this course, the center of our class activities is YOU (the student), while the role of the teacher is redefined as a facilitator. It is therefore expected that you’ll be responsible with your own learning. Grades will be based on the evidences presented to prove your learning in this course. The syllabus will be followed as closely as possible. However, the adviser reserves the right to make some changes when deemed necessary.

IX. SOME TIPS FOR SUCCESS

Here are some tips for success in this course:

Plan your work and work your plan. Practice, practice and practice, especially in solving problems and delivering your oral presentation. Read the recommended or related materials pertaining to the subject matter prior to the assigned day of presentation/discussion of a particular chemical process industry. Come to class on time and submit requirements on time. Observe deadlines, for it is not fair for your classmates who submit the requirements on time. Besides, punctuality should be part of our discipline as engineers. Come up with a uniform, attractive and presentable design of class requirements. Your instructor reserves the right to return requirements that do not meet the standards set in the class. Honesty is important. If you use someone’s ideas, don’t forget to acknowledge the source. Undocumented material is a case of plagiarism and is not acceptable. Collaboration is a much-appreciated trait in this class. Give a lot of it and receive much in return. Your instructor/adviser is available to you during his/her consultation hours. See her before you get overwhelmed and bogged down with the requirements.

X. OTHER CONCERNS Courtesy towards each person in this class is expected. Thus, any behavior that will impede learning should be avoided. Refrain from sending messages and making calls through your cellular phones during class hours. Keep your cellular phones in mute or silent mode or turn it OFF while in class, especially during presentations and class discussions. During oral presentations, please refrain from wearing short shorts, slippers and caps inside the class.
