Material chemical engineering (80340452)
This course aims to provide principles and research methods for material chemical engineering. It covers the following three parts: 1) the structures and functions of functional materials interested by chemical engineers, 2) the basic research methods for materials processing, 3) the typical process of advanced materials synthesis and their scale up. New insights on the fundamental understanding of chemical engineering and cutting edge knowledge of physics, chemistry, materials, energy, chemical engineering, and nanotechnology will be provided.
Contemporary chemical engineering: meeting global challenges (00340172)
Climate change, energy, water, global health, food, agriculture, and nutrition are key global challenges. This course provides a place for seminal and insightful discussion and also provides examples on how fundamental studies in chemical engineering and its sub-disciplines may help in finding potential solutions to the global challenges.
Nano energy (00340153)
This course is a core and challenging culture course. Energy is the resource from which heat, light, and power can be obtained. The new process of physical, chemical, and energy conversion at nanoscale will bring more convenient life to human beings. In this course, we will propose challenging and prospective topics in the field of nano energy and conduct research on the frontier scientific “problems”. The procedure of this course includes topic selection, grouping, literature research, planning, experimental exploration, results induction and analysis, discussion and summary, research results publication, course defense, and so forth.
Energy materials (00340163)
This course is a challenging course and plans to design challenging and forward-looking energy materials projects by adopting the teaching mode of “problem-solving”, relying on the experimental research platform of Department of Chemical Engineering. Students are encouraged to put forward key scientific/engineering problems in the field of energy materials and preliminarily experience and understand the research methods, so as to get a knowledge of the international frontiers of energy materials.
