Class Objectives
/Class Outline
In Advanced Reaction Process Engineering, students learn the fundamentals and applications of reaction engineering. The fundamental problem in the design and operation of reactors is how to model and mathematically treat the reaction process. In this course, students will learn about reaction kinetics analysis, reactor design, and the application of various reaction devices to industrial reactions. The course will also focus on process intensification through reaction-separation, which is a combination of reaction and separation, especially application and design of membrane reactors.
