Overview

The goal of this course to introduce molecular thermodynamics as a practical tool for engineering applications. In particular, the course would present the first year graduate student or senior undergraduate student a broad introduction to the thermodynamics of phase equilibria typically encountered in designing chemical products and processes. The course is suitable for those students who have completed their course in undergraduate thermodynamics. It would be further useful if the student has also done the first undergraduate course on chemical engineering thermodynamics.
