Jackson, Scott C.; Skaf, Dorothy – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
EXCEL spreadsheet algorithms were developed at Villanova University to efficiently and consistently retrieve information from ASPEN® flowsheets and used for grading work in senior design. The challenge is to take a large volume of data that is in the stream and unit operations reports and quickly and consistently calculate a list of key grading…

O'Connell, John P. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
Thermodynamics challenges teachers and learners. Its pervasiveness about nature, mathematical abstractness, nonnumerical relations, and complexity in applications can inhibit understanding and usage, especially by undergraduates. Perspectives are given about these obstacles, and some suggestions are made to enhance comprehension of the discipline.

Fisher, Robert J. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
Our exponentially increasing knowledge base creates many new technology challenges. Academia must therefore respond emphatically. Educating rising professionals to successfully confront these future difficulties requires innovative curricula challenges. A successful adaptation integrates STEM program protocols into core courses. Embracing…

Wankat, Phil – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
Surveys were sent to readers of "Chemical Engineering Education" in 2004 and 2018. The survey questions, detailed numerical results for 2018 and average numerical results for 2004 and 2018 are presented. Readers in 2018 are, in general, reading fewer articles than in 2004. In addition, all of the comments from both years are presented.…

Hess, Dennis W. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
Upon graduation, engineering (and science) undergraduate and graduate students are typically well-prepared for success in technical problem solving. However, they have had little exposure to the vagaries associated with the interplay of "people" and technical problems (sometimes referred to as sociotechnical efforts), especially as…

Wagner, John E.; Parrish, William R.; Bullard, Lisa G. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
Most chemical engineering (ChE) students know very little about professional licensure and the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam. Many of those who know think that licensure is something civil engineers have to get but nothing they (as chemical engineers) have to bother with. In fact, licensure is something all ChE students should be thinking…

Versypt, Ashlee N. Ford – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
Self-reflection assignments were used and assessed in an undergraduate kinetics course. The assignments involved essays where students were prompted to evaluate their proficiency in professional, non-technical skills guided by a self-evaluation rubric, which includes a rating scheme for 10 non-technical skills. The students set goals and tracked…

Nease, Jake; Adams, Thomas A., II – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
BLACKOUT! is a turn-based video game that introduces undergraduate and high school students to the types of power generation available in most electricity markets. The workshop portion of BLACKOUT! introduces students to the advantages and disadvantages of power generation by coal, natural gas, nuclear, wind and solar. The students then take the…

Melvin, Adam T.; Steel, Adrienne – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
Recent studies have identified that engaging middle school students (grades 6-8) in STEM activities increases their chances of choosing STEM-related disciplines when entering college; however, very few university-sponsored opportunities are available for these students. This paper describes an outreach day for middle school students consisting of…

Brennan, Janie; Solomon, Erin D. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
A unit operations laboratory course was significantly modified to be an open-ended problem-based experience with an emphasis on teamwork and communication skills. Students were surveyed to assess gains in engineering self-efficacy as well as to indicate which course structure components were most beneficial to learning. Students showed significant…

White, Jason R. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
In an effort to offer modern and engaging senior design projects, as well as to improve ABET student outcome achievement, students were tasked with proposing their own design project idea for potential use as a senior project. Survey results from two cohorts have indicated that the majority of the students felt they achieved targeted ABET student…

Schultz, Kelly M.; Snyder, Mark A. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
A hands-on educational module was created to illustrate the scope of chemical engineering. Students are taught fundamental concepts that they integrate in a laboratory experience designing and fabricating a 'plant-on-a-chip' microfluidic device capable of continuous processing of reactive flows. Students gain insight into chemical engineering…

Immethun, Cheryl M.; Daher, Tareq; Saha, Rajib – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
The use of active learning techniques in engineering classrooms has been limited despite substantial evidence supporting their efficacy in helping students construct problem-solving expertise. A blended classroom, which combines online and in-class learning, was employed in a Chemical Engineering Computation class to address instructional…

Bullard, Lisa G.; Felder, Richard M. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
A new chemical engineering faculty member can get a significant career head start by team-teaching the material and energy balance course with a mentor--an excellent instructor who has taught that course many times. The experience gives the mentee modeling and guided practice in research-validated teaching practices, and substantially reduces the…

Gomez, Jamie R.; Svihla, Vanessa – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
In order to realize the potential of design challenges in core chemical engineering courses, we need pedagogical strategies that enhance peer-learning. We describe parleys--a consensus-building approach to design challenge decision-making and report results from two design-based research cycles. Analysis shows students learned by coming to…
