Course description from the current catalog:

ChE 161.2 Process Evaluation and Design II
This is a continuation of ChE 161.1, and is the “capstone design course” in chemical engineering. All aspects of chemical engineering are integrated in the design of a chemical process plant. The design process consists of flowsheet development, equipment selection and sizing, utility requirements, instrumentation and control, economic analysis and formulation of safety procedures. The plant design is carried out in class and includes the use of professional simulation packages. The AIChE project is included in this course.
3 credits. Prerequisite: ChE 161.1
