O'Connell, John P. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
Thermodynamics challenges teachers and learners. Its pervasiveness about nature, mathematical abstractness, nonnumerical relations, and complexity in applications can inhibit understanding and usage, especially by undergraduates. Perspectives are given about these obstacles, and some suggestions are made to enhance comprehension of the discipline.

Fisher, Robert J. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
Our exponentially increasing knowledge base creates many new technology challenges. Academia must therefore respond emphatically. Educating rising professionals to successfully confront these future difficulties requires innovative curricula challenges. A successful adaptation integrates STEM program protocols into core courses. Embracing…

Wankat, Phil – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
Surveys were sent to readers of "Chemical Engineering Education" in 2004 and 2018. The survey questions, detailed numerical results for 2018 and average numerical results for 2004 and 2018 are presented. Readers in 2018 are, in general, reading fewer articles than in 2004. In addition, all of the comments from both years are presented.…

Hess, Dennis W. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
Upon graduation, engineering (and science) undergraduate and graduate students are typically well-prepared for success in technical problem solving. However, they have had little exposure to the vagaries associated with the interplay of "people" and technical problems (sometimes referred to as sociotechnical efforts), especially as…

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…

Bullard, Lisa G.; Felder, Richard M. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
A new chemical engineering faculty member can get a significant career head start by team-teaching the material and energy balance course with a mentor--an excellent instructor who has taught that course many times. The experience gives the mentee modeling and guided practice in research-validated teaching practices, and substantially reduces the…

Gomez, Jamie R.; Svihla, Vanessa – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
In order to realize the potential of design challenges in core chemical engineering courses, we need pedagogical strategies that enhance peer-learning. We describe parleys--a consensus-building approach to design challenge decision-making and report results from two design-based research cycles. Analysis shows students learned by coming to…

Hempel, Byron R.; Kiehlbugh, Kasi; Blowers, Paul – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
A sophomore core chemical engineering course was co-taught by two different 4 instructors in Spring 2016 and Spring 2017 with approximately 90 students both semesters via an 5 active learning environment in a collaborative learning space. Both instructors were present for 6 almost all lectures and each instructor delivered approximately 50% of the…

Geng, Jianming; Chen, Kaiyuan; Wang, Nengxin; Ling, Sihan; Guo, Muqi; Huang, Zuyi – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
US high school (HS) students are lagging behind their foreign peers in math performance. It is thus necessary to design teaching modules that motivate US HS students to learn more math and to improve their math skills. Our study set out to test two different software programs designed for the development of such skills. MATLAB Simulink provides a…

Capela, Emanuel V.; Santos, João H. P. M.; Boal-Palheiros, Isabel; Carvalho, Pedro J.; Coutinho, João A. P.; Ventura, Sónia P. M.; Freire, Mara G. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
Through the experiments described in this article, students become acquainted with the principles behind ternary liquid-liquid systems and/or Aqueous Two-Phase Systems (ATPS), and their characterization by the determination of the binodal curve, tie-lines, tie-line lengths and critical point, as well as in applying the non-random two-liquid model…

Piergiovanni, Polly R.; Goundie, David A. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
Chemical engineering is a challenging field to explain to first-year students. Food production processes are a safe and accessible way to introduce the students to basic engineering concepts. Modernist cuisine -- using scientific methods and engineering techniques to enhance classical cooking -- was used as a hook to capture the attention of…
