Mode of learning Self study
Mode of Delivery Video and Text Based
The Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics programme by Swayam covers the basics of classical thermodynamics. The first part of the course will emphasise building a strong foundation in the subject, and the second part will focus mainly on the applications of thermodynamics in chemical engineering problems related to phase equilibria.
Moreover, Swayam’s Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics course is an undergraduate-level course, intended for students and faculty of engineering thermodynamics. It is a core course that takes around 12 weeks to be completed and instructed by Prof. Jayant K. Singh, a top instructor from IIT Kanpur.
The online course also has industry support from all chemical engineering-based industries, namely Indian Oil, ONGC, Unilever, UOP, Bechtel, and EIL. The Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics programme is a 100% online course, with plenty of video tutorials, online lectures, readings, and practice tests for comprehensive learning. Besides, all the course materials are accessible for free.
