Students will be led step-by-step through a chemical engineering project that illustrates important aspects of the discipline and how they are connected. At each step, they will be presented with a new aspect of chemical engineering and have the opportunity to use what they have learned to solve engineering problems and make engineering decisions. The overview of chemical engineering presented in Introduction to Chemical Engineering: Tools for Today and Tomorrow, 1st Edition helps rstudents to form a conceptual "skeleton" of the discipline. It has an increased focus on contemporary applications of chemical engineering . B rief statements about the leadership role of chemical engineering have been added regarding the many challenges that come with it. Discussions have been added to the end of most chapters providing examples of how topics in the chapter are applied to current problems of society to help motivate student study of the topics.
