Course Description (CHE)

21) Applied Fluid Mechanics

–  Number of credits: 2 (theory) + 1 (practice)

– Prerequisites/Previous subjects: no

–  Description of course content: This course introduces students to basic physical concepts and mathematical representations in fluid mechanics. This will become an important foundation for understanding and developing tools for chemical engineers to analyze chemical, physical, and biological processes. Specifically, the following lessons will be covered (this is not an exhaustive list):

–  Course Description: This course introduces the students to fundamental physical concepts and mathematical descriptions in fluid mechanics. These will prove vital for the comprehension and development of tools utilized by chemical engineers to analyze chemical, physical, or biological processes. In particular, the following topics will be discussed (not an extensive list by any mean).

–  Dimensional analysis and dynamic similarity

–  Fluid statics

–  Stresses in fluid; elementary constitutive relations

–  Conservation principles: mass, momentum, and energy

–  Navier–Stokes equations, and few simple exact solutions

–  Viscous fluid: boundary layer and turbulence

22) Entrepreneurship

–  Number of credits: 2 (theory)

– Prerequisites/Previous subjects: no

– Course Description: An introduction to the creative and innovative managerial practices of successful entrepreneurship. This course reviews the significant economic and social contributions entrepreneurs provide to society, the intense lifestyle commitment, and the skills necessary for entrepreneurial success. It explores how to identify and develop solutions to the most common leadership and personal challenges faced by entrepreneurs when starting new ventures or launching new products.
