Many chemical engineers are self-taught in the use of spreadsheets for day-to-day problem-solving, which is testimony to the inherent usefulness of this tool. The goal of this course is to provide you with a more comprehensive background in spreadsheet techniques and improve the quality, reliability and efficiency of your work. Dr. Clough will provide instruction using Microsoft Excel to illustrate a wide range of spreadsheet applications and skills that are relevant to the calculations and problem-solving encountered by practicing chemical engineers. Lectures include frequent live spreadsheet demonstrations. There is ample opportunity for you to practice and perfect the sound techniques and the methods taught.

Topics include:

  • Excel basic skills – improving your efficiency
  • Working with tables of data and information
  • Process calculations including flowsheeting and economic analysis
  • Applied statistics including regression analysis
  • Solving equations – algebraic and differential
  • Instructor(s): 

    David E. Clough

    Dr. David Clough has taught applied statistics at the undergraduate and graduate levels to chemical engineering students for the past 20 years.  At the graduate level, his students have included practicing professionals.

    Dr. Clough recently retired after a 43-year career on the faculty of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of Colorado’s Boulder Campus.  He is still active in the Department in the Emeritus role, including the supervision of research in applied process control.  He teaches several AIChE Academy courses, both in-person and eLearning...Read more
