6cp; 4hpw, on campus
Requisite(s): 65111 Chemistry 1 OR 60101 Chemistry and Materials Science



This subject covers the theory and practice of chemical process engineering, which transforms raw materials and energy into products that are useful to society, at an industrial scale. The subject provides an overview of three key areas of process engineering: basic theoretical concepts such as mass and energy balance, thermodynamics, and transport phenomena; industrial unit operations such as momentum, mass, and heat transfer, and chemical and biochemical reaction; and process design, control, and automation, computer-aided design, and plant design and operation.
