Description:
Energy and mass
transfer in chemical engineering processes, with computer
applications.
Steadystate and unsteadystate heat conduction and molecular diffusion. Energy
and mass transfer in fluids undergoing flow, phase change and/or chemical
reaction. Radiant heat transfer, Heat exchangers and mass transfer equipment.
Course
Objectives:
Students will
achieve the educational objectives that include: (1) an ability to apply
knowledge of
mathematics, science and engineering; (2) an ability to design and conduct
experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data; (3) an ability to
function in multidisciplinary teams; (4) an ability to identify, formulate,
and solve engineering problems; (5) an understanding of professional and
ethical responsibility; and (6) an ability to use the techniques, skills, and
modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
Evaluation
of Meeting ABET Criteria:
Relevant
ABET Outcomes and Assessment:
(What
we are expecting our juniors to achieve professionally)
(a)
an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering

Early term & end term
assessment quizzes will be evaluated to quantify progress
(c)
an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs
Homework
problems related to design of separation and heat exchanger devices
(e)
an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
One
research paper will be assigned for a takehome assignment to review how
engineering problems can be identified, constructed, and solved in an
applicationscentric context.
(g)
an ability to communicate effectively
Bonus
points are accorded to the most students that communicate effectively during
class. Entire class is drawn into
interactive discussions.
