This book seeks to integrate interactive open educational resources (OER) to support learning within and outside class in Chemical & Biological Engineering (CHBE) 220 – Founding Principles in Chemical and Biological Engineering I.

CHBE 220 introduces chemical engineering design and has students practice design through a course-long design project. This is a mandatory course in the CHBE degree program, which about 120 students take per year. Students work in teams of four to design and analyze various components of a chemical process. Process topics studied in the past include carbon capture from power plant emissions and ammonia production for use in fertilizers, to name a few.

The topics introduced in the lectures are constructed according to the timeline of the engineering design process, as shown below.
