The course "Introduction to Chemistry and Chemical Technology, 6A2X0" is the starting point of the Major Chemical Engineering & Chemistry. It forms the basis, connects and is a prelude to the introduction sections "Chemical and Process Technology" and "Molecular Systems and Materials Chemistry”. Within this course some aspects of Polymer Chemistry are covered. Alongside to this course, a corresponding and supporting lab course is offered (6A1X0).
There are three courses in the area of Physical Chemistry:
• Introduction to Chemical Bonding & Thermodynamics
• Advanced Thermodynamics and Kinetics
• Advanced Chemical Bonding, Electricity and Magnetism
These courses are based on the textbook “Physical Chemistry” (Atkins). The course Advanced Calculus for ST (2nd quartile, 1st year) is connected with the basic course Calculus (1st quartile). In the second year the course Linear Algebra and Statistics is offered.
The introduction section Molecular Systems and Materials Chemistry contains four units of study: Organic Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Materials Science and lab course Organic Chemistry. In this introduction section, the chemistry and materials science are integrated in a natural way. In Inorganic Chemistry structure and properties of inorganic materials are discussed, in Organic Chemistry, the focus is on synthetic polymers and in the lab course Organic Chemistry a polymer synthesis- and characterization is performed.
The introduction section Chemical and Process Technology includes the units Transport Phenomena, Separation Technology, Chemical Reactor Engineering and the lab course Process Technology.
At the end of the Major integration of "Chemical and Process Technology" and "Molecular Systems and Materials Chemistry" takes place. The theme Energy is chosen as is it fits well with the research in our department. This integral component consists of a theoretical course (6I1X0, Energy) and a corresponding Design Based Learning (DBL) Project (6I2X0, DBL Energy).
