Enzymes are the engines that fuel life, catalyzing a vast array of different chemical reactions. This course will focus first on enzyme kinetics and the structural biology of enzymes. With these tools we will next move to a series of


An intensive hands-on practice of engineering. Experimental work in the areas of separations, heat transfer, fluid mechanics, process dynamics and control, materials processing and characterization, chemical reactors. Development of written and oral technical communication skills. Associated course analysesChemical Engineering Laboratory


The course focuses on basic principles governing the equilibrium behavior of macroscopic systems and their applications to materials and processes of interest in modern chemical engineering. In the first half of the course we introduce the fundamental concepts: energy conservation


Introduction to chemical engineering analysis and computations. Course starts with unit conversions and conventions for representing processes and process variables in engineering calculations. Continues with methods for generating flow sheets and analyzing mass balances both with and without chemical reactions.


Introduction to the engineering of metabolism. The objective of this course is to introduce students to current techniques and challenges within the field of metabolic engineering. Specific topics will range from applications for energy and the environment to human health.


Introduction to chemical reaction engineering and reactor design in chemical and biological processes. Concepts of chemical kinetics for both homogeneous and heterogeneous reactions. Coupled transport and chemical/biological rate processes. Associated course analysesChemical Reaction Engineering S 2016


Course will survey modeling and solution methods for the transport of fluids, heat and chemical species in response to differences in pressure, temperature and concentration. Both steady state and transient behavior will be examined.Topics include fluid statics; conservation equations for


This course covers the theory and practice of separations technologies used in the chemical and biochemical industry. Both equilibrium and rate-based separations will be discussed including distillation and chromatography as the primary examples. The first two-thirds of the course will
