Course Description:

Energy and mass transfer in chemical engineering processes, with computer

applications. Steady-state and unsteady-state 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 multi-disciplinary 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 take-home assignment to review how engineering problems can be identified, constructed, and solved in an applications-centric 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.
