Advanced Chemical Engineering Kinetics National Taiwan University

Course Overview

Chemical kinetics and reactor design considering the influence of mass and heat transfers, and the process optimization.

Learning Achievement

Students will gain the knowledge of chemical kinetics and reactor design, including the heterogeneous catalysis, analysis of reaction data, the effects of mass and heat transfers, and the chemical process optimization in a industrial plant. Thus, students are capable to solve the problems, to coordinate a team and to have creativity in order to apply, evaluate and design the reaction process in chemical industry.
