A membrane separation experimental project of chemical engineering was introduced, and it had been applied to the undergraduate laboratory teaching. The effect of the membrane distillation for seawater desalination was investigated. From this project, the students learned the advanced knowledge of membrane distillation and experimental technology of membrane distillation for seawater desalination. They also increased application consciousness of transforming scientific and technological achievements into productivity.

Key words: Undergraduate teaching, Chemical engineering experiment, Membrane distillation, Seawater desalination
