Lopez, Jordan; Shaffer, Justin F. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2021
In our chemical engineering curricula, students may enroll in introductory thermodynamics as a prerequisite to or as a corequisite with material and energy balances (MEB). We sought to determine why students enrolled in these courses in a given sequence whether it impacts performance. Students' enrollment decisions were mostly based on logistics…

Godwin, Allison; Verdín, Dina; Kirn, Adam; Satterfield, Derrick – Chemical Engineering Education, 2018
We surveyed 342 first-year engineering students at four U.S. institutions interested in a chemical engineering career about their feelings of belonging in engineering, motivation, and STEM identities. We compared these students by both gender and race/ethnicity on these attitudinal factors. We found several significant differences in…

Cooper, Matthew; Bullard, Lisa G.; Spencer, Dan; Willis, Chris – Chemical Engineering Education, 2020
Direct and indirect assessments of student learning, motivation and course experience were completed for a two-semester online chemical engineering graduate bridging course. Both direct and indirect assessments showed students better accomplished learning objectives associated with material and energy balances, momentum/heat/mass transport,…

Godwin, Allison; Boudouris, Bryan W. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2020
An introductory sophomore-level chemical engineering course was redesigned, and this redesign included cyber-assisted learning through online videos, team formation, and team evaluation software. We compared the traditional 2018 course (n = 48) with the redesigned 2019 course (n = 67) on student persistence (DFW rates), motivation, and course…

Altarawneh, Mohammednoor; Dlugogorski, Bogdan – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
Due to the wide and the ever-increasing strategic applications of quantum chemistry in chemical industries, it is important to introduce chemical engineering students to illustrative case studies that deploy molecular modeling in the design of reactors and derivation of thermochemical functions. Herein, we demonstrate how quantum chemical…

Bayes, Taryn Melkus – Chemical Engineering Education, 2020
The number of PhDs awarded in chemical engineering is disproportionate with the number of tenure track positions available; an overview of the contributions that can be made by teaching-focused faculty is presented. Statistics are provided for the number of chemical engineering faculty in the US by rank, position and gender. Based on literature…

Nielsen, Rudi P.; Sørensen, Jens L.; Simonsen, Morten E.; Madsen, Henrik T.; Muff, Jens; Strandgaard, Morten; Søgaard, Erik G. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2016
Chemical engineering is mostly taught using traditional classroom teaching and laboratory experiments when possible. Being a wide discipline encompassing topics such as analytical chemistry, process design, and microbiology, it may be argued that brewing of beer has many relations to chemical engineering topic-wise. This work illustrates how…

Martín-Lara, M. A. – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2020
Solid waste management is considered to be one of the fastest growing industries in the world because of the environmental and health considerations, limitations on mining operations, product costs, increasing demands on the new materials, products and supply chains. Also, entrepreneurship has emerged as a critical aspect of engineering education…

Gautam, Satyen; Nagarajan, Karthiga; Loh, Kai Chee; Zhou, Kang; Yung, Lanry Lin Y.; Tong, Yen Wah; Li, Zhi – Chemical Engineering Education, 2020
The paper explores the effectiveness of hands-on learning (HOL) as a student-centered model to train first year chemical engineering undergraduates. The pedagogical design of the course uses laboratory sessions, lectures, reflection sessions, projects, and assessments to achieve the course learning outcomes. The adopted assessment methodology…

Eastep, Carley V.; Harrell, Grace K.; McPeak, Alexandria N.; Versypt, Ashlee N. Ford – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
An interactive MATLAB simulation app and design project are described for introducing chemical engineering concepts to engineering freshmen. A MATLAB simulation for pharmaceutical drug dosing is packaged with a graphical user interface in an app that is student friendly. Minimal engineering or coding knowledge is necessary to operate and…

Bôas Fávero, Cláudio Vilas; Moran, Shannon; Eniola-Adefeso, Omolola – Chemical Engineering Education, 2018
The Chemical Engineering graduate program at the University of Michigan implemented a peer mentoring program for PhD students, with the goal of fostering department inclusivity and improved academic outcomes through facilitated social and academic activities in diverse, small groups. In this article, we detail the peer mentoring program…

Wagner, John E.; Parrish, William R.; Bullard, Lisa G. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
Most chemical engineering (ChE) students know very little about professional licensure and the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam. Many of those who know think that licensure is something civil engineers have to get but nothing they (as chemical engineers) have to bother with. In fact, licensure is something all ChE students should be thinking…

Hirshfield, Laura J.; Mayes, Heather B. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
With the advance of engineering education research and scholarship, there has been an increased focus on amending chemical engineering courses to increase student learning, engagement and enjoyment. These approaches are often incorporated in project-based courses such as capstone design courses and laboratory courses, providing opportunities to…

Falconer, John L.; Nicodemus, Garret D. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2014
Interactive Mathematica simulations with graphical displays of system behavior are an excellent addition to chemical engineering courses. The Manipulate command in Mathematica creates on-screen controls that allow users to change system variables and see the graphical output almost instantaneously. They can be used both in and outside class. More…
