SENG 109: General Chemistry


Objectives: This course develops basic understanding of chemistry which is useful for engineering application.

Description: The course covers discussion on atoms to molecules, introduction to the chemistry of organic compounds and biochemistry, chemical kinetics and equilibrium, thermochemistry, redox reactions, and acids and bases. Students will be able to explain simple chemical models which has application in engineering related fields, gain insight into the physical origins of chemical behavior, guide in the design of materials with specific chemical properties, predict a materials response under some chemical conditions, and describe some biochemical processes that occurs in human body.
