Hours & Credits
OverviewThis module will introduce students to principles and techniques that are used in the analysis of chemical and
biochemical engineering processes. Steady state and un-steady state mass and energy balances are fundamental
tools for the assessment of such processes. The use of balances in, for example, the development of sustainable
processes will be introduced. Students? analytical abilities and problem solving skills will be developed
through regular homework assignments. Their technical reporting and communication skills are developed in the
preparation and delivery of a presentation on a technical topic, making use of internet and library resources.
This module will include a number of site visits.
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.
Please reference fall and spring course lists as not all courses are taught during both semesters.
Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
