Course goals
  • Explain, from a philosophical perspective, what scientific research looks like, how problems are solved in chemistry, the role of models in chemical engineering, and how we evaluate a problem solution in chemical engineering.
  • Explain concepts: code of conduct, whistle-blowing, dispersed responsibility and the three main theories (utilitarianism, deontology, virtue ethics). Use the ethical cycle in analysing an ethical problem in a systematic way.
  • Find a bachelor project related to own interests and skills, formulate the research plan including research question, research set up, research techniques and research planning. Reflect on the process of writing and presenting.
  • Be able to apply basic statistics on experimental data.
  • Elective Biochemistry: Be able to explain the basis cell biology, protein chemistry, cytoskeleton, cellular membrane, cellular respiration; explain how to build organic/polymeric structures for nanomedicine.
  • Elective Bionanotechnology: Learn different concepts, techniques and applications in the field of bionanotechnology. This course provides you with (I) an introduction into this field, (II) some basics in nanobiology, (III) the methods and techniques used, (IV) some applications in the field of bionanotechnology.
  • Elective Mathematical Foundations of Quantum Mechanics: Understand the concept of propositional calculus related to observations arising from physical experiments; understand how the propositional calculus related to QM experiments leads to the Hilbert space formalism; be able to apply linear operator (Sturm-Liouville) theory to find, characterise or analyse eigenstates of the Hamiltonian for single particle in one-dimension; understand the origin of some of the conceptual problems related to systems of two particles; are able to understand and criticise recent papers dealing with the concepts entanglement, locality, realism and/or hidden variables.
  • Elective Process Equipment Design (PED): Design a compressor or pump, a heat exchanger and a distillation column including mechanical aspects for a given industrial process. This course is taught by Mechanical Engineering.
You can choose one of the above 5-EC elective courses. In case you wish to follow an alternative course that is not in this list, you can request permission at the CSE Examination board.
Course content

In module 1-8 of the CSE programme students gained domain-specific knowledge in the different subfields of Chemical Engineering, and applied this knowledge in projects using several design and research techniques. Module 11 covers a broad range of topics and skills needed in learning to deal with issues ranging from how to actually do scientific research in chemical engineering, to several of the broader societal aspects of chemical engineering. In addition, students will deepen their knowledge on Statistics and can choose an elective course.
