The development of a virtual chemical engineering unit operations laboratory that is considered to be safe, reliable and cost effective for the chemical process industry (CPI) was discussed. It was found that the instruction material should be modified to adapt to an increasing use of information technology in the chemical process industry. A benefit of such operations was seen to be the reduction in the financial burden associated with purchasing and maintaining expensive physical laboratory equipment and supplies. It was suggested that the unit operations laboratory would be highly beneficial to the students by teaching both the physical and computer based portions.
