Senior Design Split (A few Updates)

There have been a couple of updates concerning the Senior Design split so i thought I would repost an article we wrote a few months back wiht the changes made.  Please see below:

As I'm sure many of you have heard by now there are definitely some changes being made to senior design. The biggest of those changes being that the course is being split from 1 three hours semester course, to 2 two hours semester courses.

Starting Fall 2012:     (Maybe Fall 2013 at Earliest)

The old CHBE 4505 Process Design & Economics will become:

CHBE 4510 Proc/Prod Design & Economics (lecture portion) ---  offered in Fall and Spring


CHBE 4520 Design Project  (actual design portion) ---  offered Spring and Summer

Updated pre-req chart standard option
Updated pre-req chart Biotech option

At this time ChBE faculty are still deciding on whether the 4510 portion will be a pre-req or a co-req for the CHBE 4530 portion.  (Basically we have to determine whether we will allow you to take both courses in the spring, which honestly defeats the purpose of splitting them into two semesters in the first place.)  

4510 and 4520 will be offered as CO-REQUISITES at this time.  Although there has been discussion to change this to a pre-req requirement, no further action has been taken (6/5/2012)

CHBE 3210 3225 & 4300 will continue to be pre-requisites for the CHBE 4510 portion and CHBE 4515 Safety will be a CO-requisite of the CHBE 4520 design portion.

Feel free to ask any questions concerning these changes and keep an eye on this blog for future updates.
