Bachelors degree in science, math, or engineering
Basic concepts of fluid mechanics, including viscous fluids, pipe flow with minor losses, simple fluid machinery, momentum and external flow. Steady state conductive and convective heat transfer. Not available for chemical engineering students.
A. Please briefly explain why it is necessary and/or desirable to add this course.
This course is required for the Chemical Process Engineering Certificate. Chemical Engineers are educated in the design and operation of chemical processes. However, there are many other degreed-professionals (electrical engineers, civil engineers, indu
B. What is the need or demand for this course? (Indicate if this course is part of a required sequence in the major.) What other programs would this course service?
This course is the second course required for the Chemical Process Engineering Certificate. The course will not service any other program. It is estimated that the course will be offered once a year with 20 students.
C. Has this course been offered as Selected Topics/Experimental Topics course? If yes, how many times?
D. What qualifications for training and/or experience are necessary to teach this course? (List minimum qualifications for the instructor.)
Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering
