courses taught

  • CHEN 1310 - Introduction to Engineering Computing
    Primary Instructor - Summer 2018 / Summer 2020
    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 - Fall 2020
    Provides a basic understanding of chemical engineering calculations involving material and energy balances around simple chemical processes.
  • CHEN 4130 - Chemical Engineering Laboratory
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019 / Spring 2021
    Involves planning and execution of chemical engineering experiments on mass transfer operations, separations, and chemical reactors. Interprets experimental data with theoretical principles and statistical analysis. Emphasizes communication with written memos, full reports, and oral presentations.
  • CHEN 4570 - Instrumentation and Process Control
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Spring 2020 / Summer 2020 / Fall 2020
    Examines principles of control theory and their application to chemical processes. Focuses on single-loop feedback and feedforward control. Laboratory sessions cover measurement fundamentals, signal transmission, dynamic testing, control system synthesis, and implementation and adjustment.
  • GEEN 1400 - Engineering Projects
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019 / Spring 2021
    First-year students solve real engineering design problems in interdisciplinary teams. Design projects vary by section. Curriculum focuses on iterative design process, teamwork and team dynamics, supporting design with testing and analysis, and technical writing. Completed projects are exhibited at an end-of-semester design expo. Students responsible for contributing towards their design project budget and poster costs, and purchasing safety glasses (approximately $75).
