Chris McCrory of Mohawk’s Chemical Engineering program is working on a project that is sure to get a reaction from students and industry alike.

Chemistry jokes aside, McCrory’s project is helping Mohawk students strengthen their industry knowledge and improve the way they learn.

He’s been awarded funding from the Applied Research and Innovation in Education (ARIE) Fund to support the development of a Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Lab Simulation focuses on developing an industrial manufacturing simulation around the Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Lab Process. The simulation will allow students to perform the same techniques on a lab scale, but in an order more suited to the pharmaceutical process. The development of the simulation will allow Mohawk students to see the relationship/connection between one lab with the next lab as well as the connection to the large scale processing of a chemical. The project also involves the development of an improved, authentic assessment tool for simulations using Sesame HQ, a web based tool that is capable of doing in lab assessment.

Input from Apotex Pharmaceuticals will be used in developing the lab.
