Course Details


  • This course presents an approach that emphasizes the classical problem-solving approach (defining the sequence of events) with the addition of the steps of formulating a theoretically correct working hypothesis, providing a means to test the hypothesis, and providing a foolproof means to eliminate the problem. The initial part of the course focuses on defining the problem that must be solved and obtaining the location, time, and quantity-based specifications of the problem. The initial part of the course is suitable for all engineering disciplines as well as non-engineers.
  • The second part of the course deals with the utilization of chemical engineering fundamentals to develop a technically correct working hypothesis that is the key to successful problem-solving. The primary emphasis is on pragmatic calculation techniques that are theoretically correct.
  • The attendees are encouraged to bring real problems that they are working to use in discussions on the last day of the course. These problems should be of a non-confidential nature that can be discussed without violation of any confidentiality restrictions.
