Courses Taught by Prof. Wilmer:
This course is designed to introduce chemical engineering undergraduates to product design concepts, with particular relevance to so-called ‘chemical” products. By the end of the semester, it is expected that student groups will demonstrate the ability to create a viable product concept based on interaction with appropriate customer segments and successfully pitch the concept in a professional manner.
The objective of this course is to learn mathematical methods used in chemical engineering -- primarily those dealing with solving differential equations. By the end of the course students should be able to apply these methods to tackle the kinds of problems that appear in chemical engineering research.
See past years this course was taught: Fall 2015.
This fast-paced course will train students to produce professional scientific visual work, suitable for publications, presentations, and communicating to the public. Advanced topics, such as 3D modeling & animation, handling and visualizing large datasets, interactive displays, and 3D printing will be covered. The course will emphasize the importance of producing high quality artwork in scientific communication.
