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
