Applied Maths for Chemical Engineers (CHNG2802)


This unit consists of two core modules: MODULE A: Applied Statistics for Chemical Engineers and MODULE B: Applied Numerical Methods for Chemical Engineers. These modules aim at furthering your education by extending your skills in statistical analysis and Chemical Engineering computations. This unit will also enable you to develop a systematic approach to solving mathematically oriented Chemical Engineering problems, helping you to make sound engineering decisions. The modules will provide sufficient theoretical knowledge and computational training to progress in subsequent engineering analyses including Process Dynamics and Control and Chemical Engineering Design. This unit will provide students with the tools and know-how to tackle real-life multi-disciplinary chemical engineering problems.
