  • Fundamental principles underlying unit operations in microelectronics processing technology will be introduced in CBE473. Physical and chemical models of the processes will be studied for better understanding of processes. Principles of chemical reaction engineering and transport phenomena will be applied for the interpretation of processes aiming process simulation and optimization. If time permits, current display technology and technologies involved in micro battery, micro fuel cells and micro reactors will be briefly introduced.
  • The objective of "Fluid Mechanics of Microsystem" course is two-fold as the understanding of fluid with complex structure and fluid flow in micro channels becomes important in the field of biotechnology and nanotechnology. First objective is to understand the basic principles in the physical phenomena of fluid mechanics found in most processes in chemical engineering, biotechnology and nanotechnology. Second objective is to strengthen the skills to apply these principles to the analysis, optimization and design of real processes. In this course, we introduce the basic concept of continuum mechanics, conservation equation and Newton's constitutive equation. Then, we deal with the analysis of Navier-Stokes equations, dimensional analysis, creeping flow, boundary layer theory, turbulent flow, macroscopic balances and electrokinetic phenomena.

  • Biotechnology for humans amounts to about 80% of biotechnology markets and the major areas for these contributions are drug delivery, tissue engineering, biochips and recombinant DNA products. Thus, there is need to help engineering a student better understanding of engineering principles of human physiology. Mass and Energy balance of human body, respiratory system for oxygen exchange through membrane, blood circulation and blood coagulation, digestive bioreactor systems, filtration and urinary system. In addition, the recent development of artificial blood, diabetes and high blood pressure will be introduced with tissue engineering and gene therapy
  • The lecture is organized to achieve the goals shown below

    1. To learn chemical and biomolecular engineering principle from product design perspective
    2. To understand the importance and difference of process and product design in chemical and bio-related industry
    3. Learning general principles of product design under the context of chemical and biomolecular engineering.

  • This class will cover "chemical reaction engineering", which deals with the design and analysis of chemical reactors to produce useful products economically. We will approach this with an analytical perspective, starting from fundamentals such as mole balances and rate laws to the design of non-isothermal/ ideal reactors.

  • This lecture will start with the description of chemical engineering profession, and offers a well-paced introduction to chemical engineering. Students are expected to get a concept how to practice engineering. They are introduced to the fundamental steps in design and three methods of analysis: mathematical modeling, graphical methods, and dimensional analysis. While mass and energy balances are the major principles for chemical engineering, the broad view of what chemical engineers do will also be presented including the general chemical and biomolecular engineering knowledge related to advanced functional materials, new catalysts and microstructured particle technology, fuel cell, microelectronic process, microfluidics , and bioengineering. Students learn engineering skills by designing and analyzing chemical processes and process units in order to assess product quality, economics, safety, and environmental impact.
