Available courses

Kinetics of homogeneous reactions: variables affecting rate; elementary and non-elementary reactions. Thermodynamics of chemical reactions: temperature and pressure effects. Basic concepts in chemical kinetics: determination of the reaction rate expression; molecular interpretations of kinetic phenomena; multiple reactions; autocatalytic reactions. Basic concepts in reactor design: types of reactors; ideal reactors; recycle reactor; autocatalytic reactors; isothermal operation; treatment of multiple reactions; temperature and energy effects in chemical reactors; optimum temperature progression. Kinetics of heterogeneous reactions; mechanism of catalysis; types of catalysis; operation and properties of catalysts.


Integrated design of a chemical plant considering related design considerations and cost estimation.

The project/thesis must meet the requirements of a complex engineering problem and must be sufficiently limited in scope so that the student can expect to attain a satisfactory solution in one year of work. The purpose of this course is to make the students responsible for planning and carrying out research projects and communicating through formal reports and presentations.
