Lecture Hours: 1
Lab Hours: 0
Credit Hours: 1

This one credit course looks at the role members of society have in practicing their profession. During the next several weeks we shall consider the building blocks of chemical process engineering and assess one or two industrial scale processes. We will determine whether these processes contribute to the viability of a profitable business, to their ability to operate within legal parameters, and to  whether society benefits from their existence. During our time together we shall challenge ourselves to recognize our professional obligations. Whether we become chemists, engineers, environmental scientists, or business analysts we all 6 share the burden of travelling life's journey as a responsible citizen of planet earth.
