3D Virtual Control Room for The University of Hull- Chemical Engineering

Posted by Marketing on Thursday 14th September 2017

TSC Simulation have recently delivered a state of the art Virtual Control Room with 3D Virtual Reality interactions to The University of Hull's Chemical Engineering Department

Combining the use of high fidelity dynamic simulation models to realistic 3D environments helps The University bridge the gap between theory and real-life for training in process control.

The students gain an in-depth understanding for what it's like to work on a processing facility as both a field operator and a control room technician. The system is being used to build their knowledge of plant design, HAZOPs and process safety.

Along with the 3D environments, TSC have supplied a number of high fidelity generic simulation models so the theory learnt in lectures can be put to the test. The generic models have workbooks which ensures that the students have a good understanding of how each system works and how changes to the system affects the overall dynamics.

The combination of the generic models, the virtual control room and the 3D interactive VR technology sets The University of Hull aside as a world class training facility for our future chemical engineers.
