Active Learning of Industrial Chemical Processes By Virtual Immersive Laboratory: The Eye4edu Project

Carlo Pirola

The use of virtual immersive laboratories is an appealing and synergistic possibility for education in science, technology and engineering, complementary to experimental activities performed in laboratory or exercises delivered in traditional rooms. A new educational project, called Eye4edu, proposed different exercises on a virtual immersive Crude Distillation Unit (VCDU), with the aim to apply an active scenario for the learning of the structure of the single unit operations, the whole plant and the control and intervention operating procedures. The project was proposed to the bachelor and master students for the degree in Industrial Chemistry in the Milan University. VCDU is based on the combination of the action of “Aveva XR for Training”, formerly Eyesim, and Dynsim software, from Aveva Company, for the physical representation and the dynamic chemical behaviour of the plant. Several exercises on the plant were proposed to the students both for practical and management operations in the plant. The students were required to work on the basis of the information available in the technical documents, as PFD and P&ID. The project was proposed both in presence and as distance learning, respectively before and during the health emergency due to SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. The description of the virtual laboratory and an analysis of its use and educational impact in face-to-face and remote delivery will be discussed in this presentation.

Biography

Carlo Pirola

Carlo Pirola works as Associate Professor in the Chemical Plant sector in the Chemistry Department at the University of Milano. He graduated in Industrial Chemistry in 2000 and received his PhD in 2008 with a thesis concerning new iron supported catalysts for the synthesis of Fischer Tropsch. He became assistant professor in 2011 and then associate professor in 2017 in the field of chemical plants. He teaches in the Industrial Chemistry Degree the courses "Chemical Plants with Laboratory" (bachelor) and "Industrial Processes and Scale up" (Master).

His main fields of research are: separation processes (equilibrium between fluid phase, distillation, absorption), heterogeneous catalysis, process optimization and simulation, reactors and photocatalysis.

Carlo Pirola is the author of 163 publications with 3355 citations and an H index of 32 (source: Scopus, January 2023).
