Principles in Chemical Engineering
Conservation Principles in Chemical Engineering examines the applications of fundamental laws of mass and energy conservation to chemical and physical processes. Emphasizes material and energy balances on chemical processes. Students are given an opportunity to develop skills in applying chemistry, physics, and mathematics to identify and solve chemical engineering problems. They will practice using the methodologies, resources, and fundamental concepts to formulate and solve material and energy balances on chemical process systems, and will evaluate those answers for reasonableness based on fundamental concepts. Students will discuss and engage in thinking about the many applications of chemical engineering, the many possible career fields within chemical engineering, and the societal responsibilities of the Chemical Engineering Profession.
Nanotechnology in Engineering
Nanotechnology is the refinement of functional properties of materials, devices, or systems that are in at least one dimension smaller than 100 nm. In recent years, nanotechnology has revolutionized how we think of science and its impact on society. In this course the student will explore a wide range of new technologies based on, or influenced by, breakthroughs in nanoscience. Such nanotechnologies include, but are not limited to, spintronics, quantum computing, carbon nanotube electronics, nanoparticle cancer remediation strategies, biomolecular electronics, and nanomachines. A general goal is the engineering of new or enhanced macroscopic properties from nanostructure or nanoscale materials and components. Through review of the scientific literature, classroom lecture, seminars by international leaders of nanotechnology, and student team projects, the student will become well-versed in this important burgeoning field of nanotechnology.
CHEU 634 Nanomaterials: Thin Films and Structures
Nanomaterials are engineered to take advantage of unique intrinsic properties that result from at least one length scale of less than 100 nm. Nanomaterials play an important role in chemical and other engineering disciplines with applications in a variety of fields including material processing, drug delivery, semiconductor devices, and catalysis. This course explores the unique properties and processing of materials in nano-scale films and nanostructures. Basic properties of nanomaterials, the measurement of nanoscale phenomenon, and the fundamental kinetic and transport principles in the manufacuting of thin films and nanostructures are stressed. The fundamentals are discussed in terms of the latest research in multifunctional devices and nanotechnology.
