This course serves as a basis of chemical engineering thermodynamics applied to the calculations of fundamental and derived thermodynamic properties and solution of phase equilibrium problems. Course topics include:

  • Thermodynamic Properties of Real Substances
  • Calculation of Changes in Internal Energy, Enthalpy and Entropy
  • Thermodynamics of Mixtures
  • Equilibrium & Phase Stability in One-Component Systems
  • Fugacity Calculations for a Pure Component and a Component in a Mixture
  • Excess Mixture Properties and Activity Coefficients
  • Vapor-Liquid Equilibrium


This course serves as an introduction to polymer terminology and provides basic understanding of structure and properties of polymeric materials. Topics covered include basic terminology and history of polymers, polymer synthesis (free radical and step growth polymerization), polymerization kinetics, polymer structure and morphology, thermal transitions, molecular weight determination, mechanical properties and processing of polymers.

This course is about the fundamentals of numerical methods and the applications of numerical methods in engineering.

CHE-219 is an introductory course to teach the fundamental principles of chemistry for understanding the source, fate, and reactivity of compounds in natural and polluted environments. Emphasis will be placed on the environmental implications of chemistry of the atmosphere, hydrosphere,  biosphere and lithosphere.

 

Global environmental issues will be discussed such as climate change, stratospheric ozone depletion, pollution and treatment of water sources, and the utilization of pesticides.


The course will cover materials, devices and systems related to solar electric generation including how solar cells convert light into electricity, fundamental device physics, device designs, manufacturing and testing of solar cells. Technologies that are currently on the market, and how to evaluate the risk and potential of existing and emerging solar cell technologies including the potential & drawbacks of first, second and third generation devices (Amorphous, single- and multicrystalline silicon, CdTe, CIGS, CPV, organic solar cells etc.) will also be covered. A design project for a c-Si based solar cell will be given.
