The Course Description for Numerical Computing for Chemical Engineers Course at Missouri University of Science and Technology States that Students Will "Add to their Programming Skills by Exploring Numerical Computational Techniques for … Chemical Engineering Processes." the Challenge is that the Course is Taught Early in the Curriculum Before the Students Know What Those Chemical Engineering Processes Are. the Course Has Been Structured as a Flipped Class with Class Time Devoted to Solving Problems with the Numerical Tools. to Provide Relevance for the Material, an Experimental Component Has Been Added to the Course. in the Laboratory Sessions, the Students Conduct a Brief Experiment or Activity and Then Analyze that Process using the Computational Technique for the Week. the Activities and Experiments Take No More Than 10 Minutes to Conduct and Use Inexpensive Materials. in This Paper, the Author Will Present How the Course Was Flipped to Accommodate the Lab Sessions, Describe the Experiments Used in the Course, and Relay the Student Response to This Course.
