HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (Feb. 25, 2014) – Registration is now open for "Chemical Engineering: Review of Enabling Sciences Through Problem Solving," a free, 9-week, online course offered by the College of Engineering at The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH). Those familiar with chemical engineering and those interested in learning more about the topic are encouraged to enroll.

UAH professor Dr. Krishnan Chittur,, who will teach the course, says that the objective of "Chemical Engineering" is to review essential concepts from the four key enabling sciences that impact chemical engineering education: chemistry, mathematics, physics, and biology.

"By introducing problems that chemical engineers are asked to solve and exploring the reasons why the enabling sciences are required to solve them," he says, "participants will gain a better understanding of the underlying disciplines supporting the work in chemical engineering."
