Supplementary Instruction Leader Chemitry for Chemical Engineers [CHEM161]

University of KwaZulu Natal

The SI program targets traditionally difficult academic courses –
those that have a high rate of low marks, failures, and withdrawals,
and provides regularly scheduled, out-of-class, peer-facilitated
sessions. The SI leaders are the key people in the programme; students who
have demonstrated competence in the targeted courses. SI leaders are trained. The training covers such topics as how
students learn as well as instructional strategies aimed at
strengthening academic performance.

Tutor

Thermodynamic 1[ENCH2TD]
Tutor University of Kwazulu Natal This is a second year chemical engineering module where I served as a tutor. As a tutor the task is to monitor that the students make a fair attempt at the tutorial problems and also to conduct the tutorial itself assisting them in key areas of the assigned questions.

Shell and BP SouthAfrican Petroleum Refineries Pty

Shell and BP SouthAfrican Petroleum Refineries Pty
Vacation Work Student) Ltd I worked on the Oil Movements and Despatch(OMUTDE) section of the plant investigating the extent of fouling on the headers supplying heat exchangers on the cooling water system. This entailed collection of heat exchanger data designinformation such as flows and temperature differences on the Plant Information(PI) system and making comparison with actual measured flow and temperature data. Duties: Creating a database compilation of all heat exchangers servicing the cooling water system and recording heat exchanger performance data Quantify the discrepancy in terms of percentage between the heat exchanger design information and the actual measured plant performance and ascertain whether it's within a specific tolerance. Make recommendations where flows are too low or high and highlight to supervisor the heat exchanger units that may need cleaning. https://www.visualcv.com/emmanuel-gande

Master of Science in Engineering (Dissertation under examination)

University of KwaZulu-Natal

My Research Project is part of the continuing research program on the thermodynamic properties of fluorocarbons and their mixtures within the Thermodynamics Research Group (TRU) of the Chemical Engineering at the University of Kwazulu Natal. It entails the measurement of High Pressure Vapour-Liquid Equilibrium of binary mixtures PFCs in combination with varying alkane chain lengths..
