- Duration: 1 hour
- PDHs: 1.00
In recent years, the Python programming language has rapidly grown in popularity for technical and scientific computing. This 60-minute program will cover the basics of getting started with Python for chemical engineering, from basic calculations to common data manipulation tasks. An overview on Python's strengths and limitations as a tool in the chemical engineer's toolbox will also be discussed.
The first part will provide a quick background and an overview of the features of the language and its use in Jupyter notebooks, followed by solving common chemical engineering problems using Python. Beyond calculation, Python's usefulness for automating general tasks will be demonstrated. Finally, attendees will be directed to valuable resources for taking their next steps with Python.
You Will Learn:
- Understand pros and cons of Python for chemical engineering
- Locate resources to assist with self-paced learning
- Recognize the appropriate application of different Python packages
- Duplicate the working examples of Python programs that are presented
- Translate the working examples to other similar applications
