Newly Expanded to Two Days!

Spreadsheets are the chemical engineer’s tool of choice for day-to-day problem-solving; yet most chemical engineers have little formal training in their application to typical scenarios. This two-day course provides a comprehensive, hands-on overview of spreadsheet applications, focused on the needs of chemical engineers. Join expert instructor David Clough, who has taught this course over 100 times, as he provides dozens of useful tips and techniques to fill gaps in your spreadsheet knowledge.

Chemical engineering problem-solving with spreadsheets

In two days, you will implement typical chemical engineering calculations using Excel, including material and energy balances, fluid flow and heat transfer, separations, chemical reactions and flowsheets. You will learn methods for solving algebraic and differential equations associated with these scenarios. You will analyze data with spreadsheet methods, including statistical methods and model-fitting. Optimization methods for process design, scheduling and economics are also included.
