Process Simulation Essentials for Undergraduate Education

Calling all Chemical Engineering academics!

Are you or your colleagues attending the 2015 AIChE Annual Meeting in Salt Lake City this November? If so, you won't want to miss out on Chemstations' exhibitor workshop called Process Simulation Essentials for Undergraduate Education.

Professors in Chemical Engineering departments worldwide have communicated to us for many years that they want to teach "engineering" and not "process simulator usage." Students need to understand the tools they will use in industry, and have an interest in a well-rounded resume/CV. So in response, we've put together a library of materials suitable for use in academic curricula.

Chemstations would like to invite professors, students, and all other interested parties to learn more about our new Process Simulation Essentials for Undergraduate Education program. We will present a half-hour overview (repeated three times during the session period) of the materials available to professors and students, including example simulations, recorded videos, presentation slide decks, and even a worldwide student competition. Between our formal presentations, Chemstations staff will be available to answer questions and go into more detail on all of the available resources.

  • Focus your time on developing course material instead of teaching simulator use
  • Get students up to speed on simulation tool faster
  • Expand students' real-world skills and interaction with global network

There is no cost to attend for AIChE Annual Meeting registrants. The overviews will be presented at
12:45 PM, 1:30 PM, and 2:15 PM. Come by for a presentation, learn about the available resources,
and chat with other educators and our staff.
