[Summary of the course] This course introduces unit operations used in reaction and separation processes in standard chemical processing plants.
[Aim of the course] The aim of this course is to acquire basic knowledge about unit operations which is essential for understanding how chemical processes are structured, designed, and operated. For students at the other graduate majors, this course provides an opportunity to learn about the field of Chemical Engineering.
By taking this course, the students will be able to :
1) understand reaction engineering and solve basic problems related to it.
2) understand separation engineering and acquire basic knowledge about the unit operations such as distillation.
