Course Description

We will give a series of lectures on necessary mathematical knowledge and skills when students will learn subjects in the chemical engineering course, especially on Probability and Statistics, Fourier Transformation, Partial Differential Equations.


Grading will be determined by a test at the end of series of lectures, and reports and short tests in class, if necessary.

Course Goals

Goal of the class is that students attain necessary mathematical knowledge that is needed when students learn subjects in the chemical engineering course.
