Summary: ChBE 4200/4210 Unit Operations/Bioprocesses Laboratory (required course)
Prerequisite(s): Separation Processes (ChBE 3225), minimum grade of "C" and
Kinetics & Reactor Design (ChBE 4300), minimum grade "C"
Catalog Description: This course illustrates engineering/scientific principles and
physical models important to the data collection/interpretation of processes important to
the practice of chemical engineering.
Text: None. (All materials are available in class or on the web, or use other reference
texts that have been used in previous classes or those on reserve in the library.)
Objectives: The purpose of this course is to acquaint students with laboratory practice
and procedure in the field of chemical and biomolecular engineering. Students will learn
how to obtain, analyze, and interpret experimental data, along with how to clearly
communicate their results and analyses in written and spoken form.
Learning Outcomes: By the end of this course, a student should be able to:
1. Work effectively in 3- or 4-person teams to cooperatively carry out a project
involving problem identification, data gathering and analysis, and written and oral
communication. (Program Outcomes: d, f, g, l)
2. Determine an experimental objective, understand the theory behind the
experiment, and operate the relevant equipment safely.
(Program Outcomes: a, b, d, e, f, g, i, k, l, m, n)
