A course for transition chemistry students of chemical engineering was developed with the Department of Chemistry and Physics. It includes fluid mechanics and heat and mass transfer. Some reaction kinetics was also presented. For students with a chemistry background, this type of experience provides a strong beginning in a chemical engineering graduate program. Students experimented with the effect of interfacial area on mass transfer by measuring the quality of the coffee brewed as a function of coffee particle size. They used a spectrophotometer to measure the absorbance of the coffee.
