  • CHEN 1300 - Introduction to Chemical Engineering
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Fall 2020 / Fall 2021 / Fall 2022
    Meets for one lecture per week. Introduces chemical engineering emphasizing history of the profession, curriculum, chemical industry, and industrial chemistry. Includes industry visits, oral presentations, faculty and professional meetings,and development of a goals statement.
  • CHEN 1310 - Introduction to Engineering Computing
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018
    Introduces the use of computers in engineering problem solving, including elementary numerical methods. Teaches programming fundamentals, including data and algorithm structure, and modular programming. Software vehicles include Excel/Vba and Matlab. Formerly GEEN 1300 and COEN 1300.
  • CHEN 3210 - Chemical Engineering Heat Transfer
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2021
    Examines conservation and transfer of mass and thermal energy. Focuses on conduction and convection of heat in the context of chemical processes and heat exchangers. Addresses radiation. Also studies mass transfer rate processes, including diffusion, microscopic material balances, and correlations for mass transfer coefficients.
  • CHEN 3220 - Chemical Engineering Separations and Mass Transfer
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019 / Spring 2020 / Spring 2021 / Spring 2022 / Spring 2023
    Studies separation methods including distillation, absorption, extraction, and membranes, and graphical and computer-based solutions to separation problems. Applies mass transfer rate theory to packed and tray columns.
  • CHEN 3930 - Chemical Engineering Cooperative Education
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018
    Students enrolled in this course participate in a previously arranged, department-sponsored cooperative education program. Recommended prerequisite: 3.00 GPA or higher.
  • CHEN 4090 - Undergraduate Seminar
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Spring 2019 / Spring 2020 / Spring 2021 / Spring 2022 / Spring 2023 / Spring 2024
    Provides chemical engineering career and professional information, facilitates contact with faculty and industry representatives, and improves communication and leadership skills. Consists of a series of seminars and field trips and requires a research project involving a written and oral report.
  • CHEN 4520 - Chemical Process Synthesis
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Fall 2019 / Fall 2020 / Fall 2021 / Fall 2022 / Fall 2023
    Studies applied chemical process design including equipment specification and economic evaluation.
  • CHEN 4530 - Chemical Engineering Design Project
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2024
    Provides a team-based capstone design experience for chemical engineering students. Projects are sponsored by industry and student design teams collaborate with industrial consultants. Projects consider chemical process and product design with emphasis on economic analysis. Deliverables include an oral mid-project design review, a final oral presentation and final written design report.
  • COEN 4950 - Global Engineering Internship
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018
    Students enrolled in this course participate in a pre-approved global internship with an employer that allows them to explore the relationship between theory and practice and demonstrate evidence of significant learning (e.g., academic assignments and employer/sponsor evaluations). Pass/Fail only. Up to 3 credits may apply towards BS degree program's Free Electives (even if student has multiple enrollments in this course and/or COEN 3930). Students may also earn COEN 4950 credit for international internship facilitated through CU-approved providers that contract with CU's Education Abroad Office. These placements must be pre-approved by the student's department/program to be eligible for credit. Students should contact the CEAS International Programs Director for more information. Minimum 2.75 cumulative GPA required.
