Process Systems Engineering and Safety Group (ProSES)



Process Systems Engineering and Safety (ProSES) Group deals with the design, operation, modelling, optimisation, process monitoring and control of all kinds of chemical, physical, and biological processes through the use of systematic computer-aided approaches. Safety research activities such as process safety management and loss prevention, industrial disaster risk reduction and risk assessment.  Its major challenges are the development of concepts, methodologies and models for the prediction of performance and for decision-making for an engineered system.
