Course Description
Chemical Engineering for Non-Chemical Engineers aims to cover the fundamental concepts of chemical engineering and provide you with a solid working knowledge associated with it. If you are a non-chemical engineer this course will enable you to confidently talk to and work effectively with chemical engineers and process equipment. Many technical professionals today find themselves working with large-scale chemical processes even-though they do not have formal training in Chemical Engineering. This workshop intends to fill this gap and provide you with this knowledge in the chemical engineering fundamentals and the ability to apply this knowledge to specify, design, operate, maintain and trouble-shoot chemical processes.
