The British Chemical Engineering Contractors Association (BCECA), in conjunction with the IChemE, held an Industry Day for Part 2a students in the department on Friday March 18th, 2005.

The day was based around the design of an air separation unit, from bidding for the contract through to construction and commissioning. The groups were given a budget, and could earn penalties and bonuses depending on how they performed each task. Before each exercise there was a presentation to talk about the issues of the exercise and how things are done in the real world.
