## Process Dynamics and Controls

### Course Summary

This course is based on

As practicing chemical engineers, students will be faced with the task of doing things reliably in an uncertain world and with imperfect understanding. This course will cover a variety of approaches to reduce or manage this uncertainty through the use of robust designs, dynamic systems theory, nonlinear dynamics, control theory, and statistics.

This project is a collaboration between the faculty and students of the University of Michigan chemical engineering department. The goal of this project is to provide the greater chemical engineering community with a useful, relevant, high quality, and free resource describing chemical process control and modeling. Initial construction of this resource began in Fall 2006, and will continue in future years with other groups of students.
