Immersive learning applications in chemical and process engineering are creating the opportunity to bring entire process plants to the student. While meant to complement field trips, in some cases, this is the only opportunity for students to engage with certain industrial sites due to site regulations (health and safety, hygiene, intellectual property, etc.). An immersive learning application, representing a milk powder process plant, is used to test the students' affinity to this type of learning material.
