Massive Collection of Free Chemical Engineering Tutorials

Need a little help mastering chemical engineering concepts? If so, your dreams are about to be answered. Thanks to the efforts of the Department of Chemical & Biological Engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder, hundreds of "screencasts" are available through YouTube. The effort is sponsored by the National Science Foundation, Shell, and the University of Colorado Engineering Excellence Fund. In the video panel at right, you'll find an example for fluid mechanics. Not the aspect of fluid mechanics you need? Don't worry--there are currently 82 lectures under the category of fluid mechanics. Other topics covered include:

  • Engineering Computing
  • Fluid Mechanics
  • Heat Transfer
  • Kinetics/Reactor Design
  • Mass and Energy Balances
  • Materials Science
  • Separations and Mass Transfer
  • Thermodynamics
  • Thermodynamics Review
  • Process Design

Check out the project's page on YouTube page or the project's site. And keep an eye out for regular posts of chemical engineering tutorials here on ChEnected.

Will you or have you already used CU's screencasts to study?


This looks like a great resource for students to supplement their classroom and for professionals to brush up on the fundamentals.
