In most ChE curricula, an integrated view of process systems is not revised until the process control and design courses in the senior year. All of the other courses, essentially fill in the detail with regard to the various unit operations "boxes" that the student sees in the first course. Thus, just as the design course is often described as the capstone course, the first course can in fact be termed the cornerstone course for the process systems perspective.
