Course Name: Transport phenomena

Course abstract

This is a fundamental subject for all Chemical Engineering students and is also important in disciplines as diverse as Mechanical Engineering, Biotechnology and Nanotechnology. Over the last few decades, the subject has revolutionized the way engineering science is taught. This course deals with the unified treatment of the different transport processes, ubiquitous in industry as well as in nature. Momentum, heat and mass transfer are taught together due to the underlying similarities of the mathematics and molecular mechanisms describing such processes. The students will be made aware of the core scientific connections and will be encouraged to solve problems based on relevant analogies.
