The Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department offers a 12-credit fully online certificate program in Process Engineering. Process engineering is the merger of fundamental engineering science and knowledge along with empirical information to develop and optimize processes. Process Engineering is primarily grounded in the discipline of Chemical Engineering and its core areas, including thermodynamics, transport phenomenon, and kinetics. The fundamental knowledge for Process Engineering is encoded in mathematical models, whereas the empirical information is represented by data science/machine learning models. To be an effective process engineer, one must develop a familiarity with both of these areas, as well as the ability to integrate them. Over the course of this program, the student will be introduced to these concepts within the context of real-world case studies.
This certificate is offered by the School of Engineering.
