A new laboratory course has been developed at the University of Virginia for senior- level chemical engineering students. The new course is based on three 4-week long experiments in bioprocess engineering, energy conversion and catalysis, and polymer synthesis and characterization. The emphasis is on the integration of process steps and the demonstration of how chemical engineering is relevant to different areas of technology. The overall concept of the course and an overview of each experiment are discussed and student feedback is described.
