Shiv Krishna Madi Reddy; Meng Guo; Long Cai; Ralph E. White – Chemical Engineering Education, 2024
A method is presented which can be used to obtain analytical solutions for boundary value problems (BVPs) using the matrix exponential and Maple. Systems of second order, linear differential equations are expressed as two or more first order equations in matrix form, and their solutions are obtained using the matrix exponential, matrix…

Christopher W. Norfolk; Timothy Ellis – Chemical Engineering Education, 2024
The effect of digital tools (pre-lab videos and 3D models of experimental equipment) on student's performance of a typical lab assignment was studied quantitatively; for some students, these digital tools replaced physical access to the equipment. These students also participated in focus groups and gave good suggestions to make the digital tools…

Jessica E. Torres; Julie C. Liu – Chemical Engineering Education, 2024
To increase interest in chemical engineering and introduce non-traditional chemical engineering fields to high school women, an outreach activity focused on the biomedical applications of polymers was developed. Surveys given to students before and after the activity demonstrated greater agreement with the statements "I am interested in…

Elif Eda Miskioglu; Cheryl A. Bodnar; Brittany Butler; Jeffrey Stransky; Cayla Ritz – Chemical Engineering Education, 2024
Process safety remains an area of importance in chemical engineering education. Process safety incidents are tied to individuals' choices that require exercising judgement in weighing competing criteria. While safety is paramount, we need to acknowledge the competing criteria practitioners need to consider (budget, leadership, personal…

Glaucia H. C. Prado – Chemical Engineering Education, 2024
A chemical engineering degree offers the possibility of a variety of career paths including food and beverage industry. However, chemical engineering students are rarely exposed to food processing examples during their education. Therefore, a new elective food processing course was developed and offered for the first time in the department of…

Courtney A. Pfluger; Jennifer R. Weiser; Kristine Horvat – Chemical Engineering Education, 2024
As understanding of STEM education pedagogy deepens, traditional lecture-based courses evolve to include new philosophies, such as active learning, project-based learning, and inquiry-based learning (IBL). Additionally, hands-on educational experiences at the early stages of an undergraduate program are seminal in propelling students into the…

Ressia, Delfina; Ferro, Macarena A.; Trobiani Di Canto, Juliana A.; Saugo, Melisa; Ciolino, Andrés E. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2023
This paper reports the quantification of Ca, Mg, and Fe as micronutrients in different vegetables (spinach, sugar beets, and carrots) from raw and processed samples. Simple extraction procedures, titrations, and spectrophotometric analysis were used to determine the amounts of micronutrients before and after cooking. From the obtained results, an…

Scholes, Colin A. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2023
A teaching module for HAZOPs is presented here that was included in the capstone subject. The module included a lecture, class exercise and an advisors' led workshop. Some students undertake HAZOPs individually, representing academic misconduct. A verification strategy, based on Zipf's law, is presented that analyses word frequency and key words…

Komp, Evan A.; Pelkie, Brenden; Janulaitis, Nida; Abel, Michael; Castillo, Ivan; Chiang, Leo H.; Peng, You; Beck, David C.; Valleau, Stéphanie – Chemical Engineering Education, 2023
We present a two-week active learning chemical engineering hackathon event specifically designed to teach undergraduate chemical engineering students of any skill level data science through Python and directly apply this knowledge to a real problem provided by industry. The event is free and optional to the students. We use self-evaluation surveys…

Shaffer, Justin F.; Lopez, Jordan – Chemical Engineering Education, 2023
Chemical engineering students are typically required to take biology courses and many pursue biotechnology related careers. However, it is unknown what emotions students have toward biology that can influence curricular design. We surveyed 246 students and found that 74.6% have overall positive emotions toward biology because they find biology…

Ghorashi, Bahman – Chemical Engineering Education, 2023
Due to the structured format of most engineering courses, the number of opportunities for engineering students to view matters differently from the traditional ways is limited. Therefore, a mandatory requirement was introduced into three engineering courses for students to propose an out of the ordinary solution to certain technical problems,…

Wilson, Sarah A.; Goldberg, Deborah S. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2023
Engineering students face significant stressors such as high academic expectations and extreme time demands that have the potential to impact their mental health. Due to the mentoring responsibilities of chemical engineering faculty, faculty are often positioned to provide support for these students. Through this article, we aim to help prepare…

Weinstein, Randy D. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2023
Previously the authored showed improvement in student performance in a chemical engineering thermodynamics course using the inverted classroom when compared to the traditional lecture style course. With the addition of just-in-time learning techniques to the inverted classroom, even greater enhancement to student learning and their exam grades…
