Summary: Computer Aided Chemical Engineering
CHEN 3600 Spring 2010 Course Outcomes
Course outcomes define the desired level of learning that is to be accomplished by a student at the time
of the completion of the course. Each outcome consists of a skill or attitude as well as a desired mastery
level. By defining specific course outcomes, both students and faculty can ensure that the technical and pro-
fessional subject material essential to the course is covered as well as detailing the degree of mastery expected.

Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to:
1. Create effective graphs (x-y, scatter, line, surface) observing departmental format. Select appropriate
trend lines. Graph parametric functions.
2. Employ Excel's standard and Advanced Tool Pack functions (basic math, advanced math, logical, text,
time/date, random number generation) to solve general and chemical engineering problems.
3. Solve single and multiple variable linear regression problems using Excel's vector and array functions
(transpose, inversion, determinants) and Excel's regression analysis package (including "best model"
selection via F-statistic).
4. Record, modify and write Excel macros. Write VBA user defined functions and subprograms including
transferring data to and from the spreadsheet using absolute and relative addressing methods as well
as passing data via parameter lists.
5. Employ basic VBA programming concepts including data types, variables, and programming structures
(IF-THEN-ELSE, SELECT CASE, FOR-NEXT, DO [WHILE/UNTIL] LOOP) to solve basic and
