CHEMICAL ENGINEERING

CHEG- 467-070    SEMINAR: PRODUCT ENGINEERING

Meets in Australia. This course presents an important new and developing area of chemical engineering. Students will study and provide a written report on the design issues for various products (e.g. nicotine patch, anesthetic, sunscreen, hair conditioner) and the ingredients that will have to be used in their formulation to produce the desired effect. Special attention will be given to the colloidal ingredients required to produce a product with consumer appeal upon application (for example, to produce the correct consistency, spreadability, adhesion, odor, etc.).

COMPUTER ENGINEERING

CPEG- 467-070    SEMINAR: INTERNET OF THINGS

Meets in London. This course is designed as a hands-on exploration of how to develop, design, build and deploy systems of smart devices.
