The History of Chemical Engineering: Crash Course Engineering #5

Today we’ll cover the fourth and final of our core disciplines of engineering: chemical engineering. We’ll talk about its history and evolution going from soda ash competitions to oil refineries and renewable energies. We’ll also discuss some newer and emerging fields like biotechnology and pharmaceuticals.

What is Chemical Engineering?

In this video I discuss What is chemical engineering? To put simply, in chemical engineering you design processes to transport, transform, and produce materials. Chemical engineering is much more than just working with chemicals. You have to design chemical plants, reactors, and work with the processes that go into many of the products we know of. Careers in chemical engineering include alternative energy, food production, electronics, industrial chemicals, petroleum, and more.

In this video I also discuss chemistry vs chemical engineering and how to know which major may be better for you. As a chemistry major you'd dive deeper into learning chemical reactions on a smaller scale and wouldn't learn any of the engineering principles to scale these reactions. Simply put, if you want to work solely in a lab, and work with chemical reactions, then you might want to major in chemistry or biochemistry. However, if you want to take those reactions, but figure out how to make them happen on a large scale, so they can go out to consumers or businesses, then a major in chemical engineering would be better for you. Chemical engineers can work with chemicals in a lab, but it's just less common to hear of this.

Mass Separation: Crash Course Engineering #17

It can be really important to separate out chemicals for all kinds of reasons. Today we’re going over three different processes engineers use to achieve that separation: distillation, which separates substances based on their different boiling points; liquid-liquid extraction, which uses differences in solubility to transfer a contaminant into a solvent; and reverse osmosis, which filters molecules from a solvent by pressurizing it through a semipermeable barrier.

Chemical Engineering

Please note: Course content may have changed since this film was produced.

Chemical engineers design and operate industrial processes that convert raw materials into valuable products. The need for more sophisticated products and sustainable processes means chemical engineers are in great demand.

Our course concentrates on the scientific principles that underpin modern chemical and biochemical engineering. The aim is to produce graduates that meet the needs of today's process industries by providing technical competence, training in transferable skills, and a thorough understanding of the subject.

Some of the students who appear in our course films are also featured in the 60 Second Impressions series, which can be found at - keep checking back as we'll be adding new films every couple of weeks!

Drugs, Dyes, and Mass Transfer: Crash Course Engineering #16

Today we’re talking about mass transfer. It doesn’t just apply to objects and fluids as a whole, but also to the individual molecules and components that make them up. We’ll see that transfers of mass need their own driving force, discuss diffusion, and use Fick’s Law to help us model mass transfer.
