  • CHEN 1201 - General Chemistry for Engineers 1
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2020 / Fall 2021 / Fall 2023
    Designed to meet the general chemistry requirement for some engineering students and serve as part one for students whose academic plans require advanced work in chemistry. Topics include components of matter, stoichiometry, electron configuration, chemical bonding, molecular shapes, covalent bonding, classes of reactions, thermochemistry, gases, atomic structure, organic compounds, intermolecular forces, and phase equilibria. Examples and problems illustrate the application of chemistry to engineering sub-disciplines. Department enforced prerequisites: High school Algebra, one year of high school Chemistry or CHEM 1021 (minimum grade C-). Same as CHEN 1211, CHEM 1113, CHEM 1400 and MCEN 1024. Recommended restriction: Not recommended for students with grade below B- in CHEM 1021.
  • CHEN 1211 - General Chemistry for Engineers
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2020
    One-semester lecture and recitation course designed for engineering students with more advanced chemistry backgrounds. Topics include stoichiometry; thermodynamics; gases, liquids, and solids; equilibrium; acids and bases; bonding concepts; kinetics; reactions; and materials science. Examples and problems illustrate the application of chemistry to engineering sub-disciplines. Department enforced prerequisite: 4 or 5 on the AP Chemistry exam or passing placement exam score. Recommended corequisite: CHEM 1221. Duplicate Degree Credit Not Granted: CHEM 1021 or 1113 or CHEM 1400 or CHEN 1201 or CHEN 1203 or MCEN 1024.
  • CHEN 1310 - Introduction to Engineering Computing
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2022 / Fall 2022 / Spring 2023
    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 2120 - Chemical Engineering Material and Energy Balances
    Primary Instructor - Summer 2018 / Fall 2018
    Provides a basic understanding of chemical engineering calculations involving material and energy balances around simple chemical processes.
  • CHEN 3010 - Applied Data Analysis
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2022 / Fall 2023
    Teaches students to analyze and interpret data. Topics include engineering measurements, graphical presentation and numerical treatment of data, statistical inference, and regression analysis.
  • CHEN 3200 - Chemical Engineering Fluid Mechanics
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Spring 2019 / Spring 2020
    Introduces fluid mechanics and momentum transfer, emphasizing the application of these principles to chemical engineering systems. Same as CVEN 3313 and MCEN 3021.
  • CHEN 3210 - Chemical Engineering Heat Transfer
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018
    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 4838 - Special Topics in Chemical Engineering
    Primary Instructor - Summer 2022 / Spring 2023
    May be repeated up to 6 total credit hours.
