Energy and Geo-Environmental Engineering (EGEE)

EGEE 302 Principles of Energy Engineering (3) Basic engineering calculations and mathematical methodologies on material and energy balances and reaction rates during chemical transformations in energy systems.

EGEE 302 Principles of Energy Engineering (3)

This introductory energy engineering course enables students to identify and apply fundamental principles of chemistry and physics, as they pertain to energy and fuels, and mathematics to describe materials and energy flow through a process. Examples of the processes studied will include stoichiometry in combustion and other reactions and material flows with recycle streams. This course also enables students to describe the energy transformations in energy systems. The examples of the processes we would be applying energy conservation principles to include calculation of adiabatic flame temperature during combustion of fuels. In addition, the course will present an introduction to chemical kinetics with an overview of solid, liquid and gaseous fuel transformations. This is a required introductory course to the BS in Energy Engineering degree program. It will be a prerequisite to several of the 400 level energy engineering curriculum courses. Students will be evaluated based on homework, projects, class participation, and mid term and final exams.
