Nanosurface-Chemistry and Green Materials Chemistry Laboratory

Undergraduate Courses:

 

ECH 4824 Introduction to Materials Science (3) and

EMA 4003 Introduction to Materials Science and Engineering (3)

Prerequisites: EGN 3343 Thermodynamics 1 or consent of instructor.

Description:  This course will introduce the main families of Materials and principles behind their design, selection, development, and behavior. It will discuss the generic properties more relevant to industrial and scientific applications of metals, ceramics, polymers, and composites. The relationship of properties to structure and processing will be the main emphasis in every class.

ECH 4123 Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics (3)

Prerequisites: EGN 3343 Minimum Grade: C- and ECH 3023C Minimum Grade: C- (may be taken during same term) and MAP 2302 Minimum Grade: C- or EGN 3433 Minimum Grade: C-.

Description: This course will concentrate on the subjects of phase equilibria and chemical reaction equilibria. The students will know how to use the concepts of enthalpy, entropy, fugacity and classical thermodynamics with molecular principles to solve a wide variety of problems related to chemical engineering. This course will provide the tools for a deep learning of the material, so that they will be able to synthesized information from the classroom and creatively apply it to approach new problems in the field.

ECH 4931 Special Topics in Chemical Engineering (3)

Introduction to Polymer and Colloidal Systems (4931-002)

Description: This course defines and explains the properties of polymeric and colloidal systems. It introduces the student to the synthesis and preparation of such systems, as well as it describes the interactions between colloidal particles and polymeric materials. It defines the stability of dispersions, emulsions, and polymeric solutions. It establishes what methodologies exist to characterize them. Finally, it discusses the generic properties relevant to industrial and scientific applications and the relationship of polymeric and colloidal systemsí properties to structure to processing methodologies.

 

EGN 3000 001 and 002 Foundations of Engineering (1)

Description: Introduction to the profession of engineering. Exposure to the different disciplines of engineering incorporate examples of tools and techniques used in design and presentation.

 

Graduate Courses:

ECH 5931 Special Topics IV (1-4)

Introduction to Polymer and Colloidal Systems (5931-002)

Description: This graduate course introduces the student to the synthesis and properties of polymer and colloidal systems. Scientific applications and the relationship of polymeric and colloidal systemsí properties to structure to processing methodologies are studied. Topics such as stability of dispersions, emulsions, and polymeric solutions are also discussed. Students work on a final paper related to their research interests in polymeric and colloidal systems and present a poster to the faculty and industrial partners.
