Chemical Engineering for Non-Chemical Engineers

21 Professional Development Hours

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Gain a thorough understanding of essential chemical engineering concepts
  • Acquire knowledge of the fundamental principles governing heat and mass transfer
  • Learn about the flow of single and multi-phase fluids, enhancing your capability to work in industries that rely on fluid transport and processing
  • Understand various measurement techniques for fluids, which is essential for quality control and process optimization in numerous industries
  • Gain proficiency in various separation and extraction processes, widening your employment prospects in industries like petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, and food processing
  • Learn about the relevance of petrochemical processes and refineries, the pharmaceutical industry, the semiconductor manufacturing industry, and the food industry

All industrial processes and projects in the fields of energy and environment, as well as all forms of resource development such as mining and extraction of rare minerals, food processing, pharmaceutical process development, semiconductor industry, and chemical and petrochemical processes, utilize chemical engineering concepts and operations. That is why almost every engineer, manager, and leader working in any of the fields mentioned above requires knowledge of the basics and fundamentals of chemical engineering processes and operations. This course aims to address this need by providing an introduction to chemical engineering for non-chemical engineers and leaders who are involved in production and manufacturing industries.

This 3-day course will provide a review and introduction to subjects and applications of fluid mechanics, mass and energy balance, heat transfer, and mass transfer. Additionally, a review of chemical engineering unit operations, safety, and process control will be presented.
