Biochemical Engineering (CHEN E4660)
Application of engineering principles to biological systems. The design, development and analysis of processes using enzyme or whole cell biocatalysts will be explored. Processes of interest include those that are involved in the formation of desirable compounds and products (e.g. penicillin, antibodies) or in the transformation or destruction of unwanted or toxic substances.
(typically offered in the Fall)
Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics (CHEN E3210)
This course deals with fundamental and applied thermodynamic principles that form the basis of chemical engineering practice. Topics include phase equilibria, methods to treat ideal and non-ideal mixtures, estimation of properties, and chemical reaction equilibria.
(offered in the Spring)
