Course Synopsis

This course focuses on basic chemical engineering fundamental processes that include mass balances, energy balances and heat transfer. Firstly, the introduction of chemical engineering calculation will be taught. Then, the concept of mass balances and solving problem will be imparted. Furthermore, the theory of energy balances and solving problem will be covered. Finally, the theory of heat transfer and related problem solving is also incorporated.
