Aspiring chemical engineer participates in inaugural Yale undergraduate research conference
As a chemical engineer, you will transform matter or energy into forms that benefit human beings. You might design clean energy solutions, do research and development in pharmaceuticals, or create new ways to feed the world’s growing population.
The foundation you will build in chemistry, physics, biology, and mathematics – and your collaborations involving engineering disciplines such as computer science, and mechanical, electrical, and civil engineering – will prepare you to rise to the challenges that face both the modern-day chemical engineer and the world. Those challenges — hallmarks of the early 21st century — include environmental integrity, limited resources, and human safety.
Our faculty are leaders and innovators in their fields, bringing both deep professional experience and academic rigor to the classroom.

Applications of the first and second laws of thermodynamics to batch and flow processes important in chemical engineering for homogeneous and heterogeneous systems, mixtures, and pure materials. Topics include phase and chemical equilibria, chemical reactions, thermochemistry, thermodynamic properties, and miscibility.
Homogeneous and heterogeneous catalyzed and noncatalyzed reaction kinetics for flow and batch chemical reactors. Application of kinetic data to both isothermal and nonisothermal reactor design. This course is intended for both chemists and chemical engineers.
Advanced topics in diffusion and mass transfer in solids, liquids, and gases. Topics include Fick’s law, mass transfer coefficients, mass transfer correlation, interphase transfer, unsteady state mass transfer, adsorption, membrane separations, humidification and drying. Application to the analysis and design of mass transfer controlled process equipment.
Fundamental principles of chemical process dynamics used in the measurement and control of process variables such as temperature, pressure, and flow rate. Development of linear and nonlinear dynamic process models, stability analysis, and control system design using analytical and computer methods. Analysis, design, and tuning of process loops using computer simulations.
