Computing Through the Curriculum: An Integrated Approach for Chemical Engineering

Abstract        This white paper focuses on the integration of computing throughout the chemical engineering curriculum.  The computing experience for undergraduates in chemical engineering should have continuity and be coordinated from course to course, because a single software solution is difficult to achieve in practice.  This paper covers the topics of teaching computer programming, software […]
