Summary

Introduction to Chemical Engineering is an introductory course that provides a basic overview of the chemical engineering field. It addresses the formulation and solution of material and energy balances by using the physical/chemical properties of materials.

Content

Basis concepts

 

Keywords

Flowchart of chemical process

Mass balance

Energy balance

Degree of freedom analysis

Unit operations

Learning Prerequisites

Required courses

General chemistry

Physics

Algebra

Important concepts to start the course

an understanding of chemical and physical properties of materials

an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics to solve equations

 

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

Transversal skills

Teaching methods

The course is presented using powerpoint slides. In the 2 first hours of the course the concepts are introduced and several examples are shown and the students are asked to work together for few minutes and then sugest the solution methods. Finally the solutions of the examples are shown. In the third hour (excercise session), several problems are given to students. They work on problems and ask questions for 30 minutes and then the solutions are given by assistants on the blackboard for the rest 30 minutes. 

Expected student activities

Taking notes in the course hours

Working in groups to solve the examples given in the course hours

Solve the problems in the exercise hour

Assessment methods

This course provides a continious evaluation of the students. There are 3 written exams including the final exam. The first exam is a bonus exam and the second is the midterm exam.
