About Course

Chemical engineering is a branch of engineering that combines principles of chemistry, physics, mathematics, and biology to design, develop, and optimize processes for the production, transformation, and utilization of chemicals and materials. A chemical engineering course typically covers a wide range of subjects to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the field. Here are some key areas you can expect to learn in a chemical engineering course:

  1. Engineering Fundamentals: You will study core engineering subjects such as mathematics, physics, and thermodynamics. This provides a foundation for understanding the fundamental principles and concepts used in chemical engineering.
  2. Chemical Process Principles: This area focuses on the principles and theories of chemical reactions, mass transfer, and heat transfer. You will learn about chemical kinetics, reaction engineering, fluid flow, mass transfer operations (such as distillation, absorption, and extraction), and heat transfer mechanisms (such as conduction, convection, and radiation).
  3. Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics: You will study the thermodynamic properties of fluids and their application in chemical processes. This includes understanding phase equilibria, energy balances, thermodynamic cycles, and the behavior of mixtures.
  4. Chemical Reaction Engineering: This subject explores the design and optimization of chemical reactors. You will learn about different types of reactors, reaction kinetics, reactor design principles, and factors influencing reaction rates.
  5. Separation Processes: Separation processes are essential in the chemical industry for purifying and isolating desired products. You will study techniques such as distillation, absorption, extraction, filtration, crystallization, and membrane processes.
  6. Process Control and Instrumentation: This area focuses on the control and optimization of chemical processes. You will learn about process dynamics, control systems, instrumentation, feedback control, and process optimization techniques.
  7. Chemical Engineering Plant Design: This subject covers the design and layout of chemical plants. You will learn about process flow diagrams, equipment sizing and selection, safety considerations, cost estimation, and environmental aspects of plant design.
  8. Transport Phenomena: This field deals with the study of momentum, heat, and mass transfer in chemical processes. You will learn about fluid mechanics, heat transfer mechanisms, diffusion, and the mathematical modeling of transport phenomena.
  9. Chemical Engineering Economics and Management: Understanding the economic aspects and management principles in the chemical industry is important. You will learn about project evaluation, cost estimation, profitability analysis, process optimization, safety regulations, and environmental sustainability.
  10. Laboratory Work and Safety: Many chemical engineering courses include laboratory experiments to provide practical experience in handling chemicals, conducting experiments, and analyzing data. Safety protocols and practices in the laboratory are emphasized.
