Chemical Engineering

Chemical engineers are multi-disciplinarians who apply principles of chemistry, physics, biology and engineering to solve a range of practical real-life problems from the large scale production of pharmaceuticals to the development of novel renewable energies or the design of new bio-materials to name just a few. Some aspects of Chemical Engineering will be investigated with mini research projects including many elements of design thinking such as experimentation on small scale, process analysis, followed by iteration and redesign.

The goals of this class are to foster reasoning and analytical skills in the context of physical chemistry and organic chemistry through hands-on activities. Students will gather qualitative or quantitative data from experimental situations, understand and accurately represent data when needed and use the data to evaluate predictions, support structure determination and propose plans of action.
