Introduction to
Course 10.27

Chemical Engineering Processes Laboratory
(often called : Chemical Engineering Unit Operations Laboratory)

During the early 20th century, MIT faculty - Noyes, Walker, A. D. Little, Walker, Lewis, McAdams, Gilliland, Sherwood, and Hottel - were known for their role in defining the fundamental principles and unifying concepts of the field known now as Chemical Engineering. They defined unit operations as the basic building blocks of chemical processes. This concept has held true through the growth of the field and the subsequent development of new chemical technologies - including the modern petroleum and chemical industries. In the best tradition of MIT Chemical Engineering, Course 10.27 offers you practical experience with unit operations.

A unifying course in the curriculum, Course 10.27 will improve your understanding of theory through hands-on experience with representative pilot-scale equipment and processes. The course provides instruction in experimentation and data analysis. Emphasis will also be given to developing communication skills, both oral and written. In three 4-week experiments, you will learn about planning an experiment, research technique, specialized equipment and instrumentation, and safe operation in the laboratory.
