Course intention within the general study plan context:
This is an intermediate course intended to use mathematical analysis, algorithmic thinking and knowledge of thermodynamics (first and second law) to solve problems involving energy transformation in pure substances. Thermodynamic cycles, and the reasons why the operating efficiency of a process or thermal machine is limited, will be analyzed. Themes and concepts related to sustainable development will be included in the form of examples, problems and case studies. This course requires prior knowledge of differential and integral multivariable calculus, general chemistry and physics. The learning outcome of this course is for students to construct mathematical models explaining energy transformations in industrial processes and thermal machines.

Course intention within the general study plan context:
This is an intermediate level course, which enables students to employ the fundamentals of Chemistry, in order to relate the properties of technologically-important substances to their structure. The course will also focus on the analysis of industrial chemical processes used in the production sector, highlighting their environmental impact and identifying the need to replace them with emerging clean technologies. Previous knowledge is required in basic chemistry, reactors and economics. The learning outcome for this course is that the students be able to propose alternatives for integrating new production methods in existing chains and to evaluate the economic, social and environmental impact of a production chain in any area of chemistry.

Course objective within the general study plan context:
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to propose the flow diagram based on the process description; propose mass balances for processes with and without chemical reactions; solve the mass balance for processes with and without chemical reactions; identify areas of opportunity in a process in order to save and efficiently use materials (waste minimization).
