Integrating Biological Systems in the Process Dynamics and Control Curriculum
Parker, Robert S.; Doyle, Francis J.; Henson, Michael A.
Chemical Engineering Education, v40 n3 Sum 2006
The evolution of the chemical engineering discipline motivates a re-evaluation of the process dynamics and control curriculum. A key requirement of future courses will be the introduction of theoretical concepts and application examples relevant to emerging areas, notably complex biological systems. We outline the critical concepts required to integrate biological content within the traditional framework of process dynamics and control. This paper also details open issues and our experience with three courses on three different campuses to demonstrate alternative approaches to achieve this integration.
