ChE-340 / 4 credits

Teacher: Boghossian Ardemis Anoush

Language: English


Summary

This course applies concepts from chemical kinetics and mass and energy balances to address chemical reaction engineering problems, with a focus on industrial applications. Students develop the ability to analyze and design chemical reactors of industrial importance.

Content
