Coursework


Core Courses

CHEG670: Particle Rate Processes Analysis of physicochemical fundamentals and rate equations for key particle formation, growth and size reduction processes including: physical and chemical nucleation, accretional growth mechanisms, collisional growth, sintering and ripening, dispersion and comminution. CHEG674: Particle Processing Operations Application of particle technology fundamentals to the analysis and design of particle manufacturing processes, including classification, filtering, clarification, milling and dispersion, agglomeration, drying, coating and crystallization. Application of process flowsheet software (gSolids) to analysis of combined processes such as milling circuits.
CHEG671: Particle Transport Analysis of the fundamentals of particle motion and their applications to transport processes involving particles, including granular and powder flows, dense and lean-phase pneumatic conveying and slurry flows.

CHEG672: Mathematics of Particle SystemsAnalysis of population balance model of particulate systems with application to the design of particle-based unit operations. The course draws on elements of linear analysis, ordinary differential equations and partial differential equations to enable the solution of mathematical models of particulate systems based on the rate kernels.
CHEG675: Particle Product Engineering Capstone design course synthesizing the fundamentals of particle science and engineering into the design and production of particle-based products as well as the state-gate process for product engineering and development. This development process includes the phases of product conceptualization, feasibility testing, prototyping, assessment of manufacturing needs and costs, and development of a product introduction plan. The students will also develop a business plan for attracting capital necessary to startup a business based on their product concept.
CHEG673: Particle Properties & Characterization Analysis of the key thermodynamic, surface chemical, morphological and mechanical properties of solid particles and particle assemblies that are critical in the design and manufacture of particulate systems. Introduction to common analytical methods, including sampling and sample preparation. CHEG684: Particle Technology Internship Four hundred hours of fieldwork designed to allow a student to apply acquired knowledge in an industrial setting. Requires a company sponsorship, a minimum of one progress review by mentors, a performance evaluation, an oral presentation and a written paper to be submitted to the administrator of internships.
