“Teaching of Chemical Process Design – What should be the Contents?

Invited Lectures and Panel Discussion By Prof. Daniel R Lewin and Prof. Warren D Seider

10 August 2022 | 14:00 – 17:00 hrs. (CET)

Prof. Warren D. Seider is Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania. In process design, he coauthored FLOWTRAN Simulation – An Introduction (with J.D. Seader and A.C. Pauls) and Product and Process Design Principles: Synthesis, Analysis, and Evaluation, 4th Ed. (with J. D. Seader, D. R. Lewin, S. Widagdo, Rafiqul Gani, and Ka Ming Ng). He has coordinated the design project course for nearly 40 years involving projects provided by many practicing engineers in the Philadelphia area. Professor Seider was the co-recipient (with Professor J. D. Seader) of the AIChE Warren K. Lewis Award in 2004, and the recipient of the AIChE Computing in Chemical Engineering Award in 1992.  In 2011, he received the AIChE F. J. Van Antwerpen Award, and in 2008, he was recognized by the AIChE Centennial Committee as one of “Thirty Authors of Groundbreaking Chemical Engineering Books.”  He was elected as a Fellow of AIChE in 2005 and as a Director of AIChE in 1983. He has authored or coauthored over 165 journal articles and co-authored seven textbooks. He was elected as a Fellow of AIChE in 2005 and as a Director of AIChE in 1983, and has served as chairman of the CAST Division and the Publication Committee. He helped to organize the CACHE (Computer Aids for Chemical Engineering Education) Corporation in 1969 and served as its chairman.

Prof. Daniel R. Lewin holds the Churchill Family Chair at the Faculty of Chemical Engineering at Technion. He is the co-author of the book, Product and Process Design Principles, published by John Wiley and Sons, whose fourth edition appeared in 2017, which is a widely-used teaching text in chemical process design. From 2019, the enhanced eBook of the 4th Edition includes approximately 90 videos clips and associated quiz questions, in a sense making it the first flipped textbook on process design. Daniel has been consistently active in continuing the development of his courseware, which promotes student awareness and competence in all aspects of Process Systems Engineering. He has twice received Muriel and David Jacknow Awards, as well as the Weissman Award for his innovative teaching methods.  In 2009, he was the recipient of the American Institute of Chemical Engineering’s David Himmelblau Prize for Innovations in Computer-based Chemical Engineering Education. In 2015, he was the recipient of the Yannai Prize for teaching excellence at the Technion.

Apart from his above-average teaching load, he also served as the Assistant to the Technion Senior Vice President for the Promotion of Teaching at the Technion, for eight years (2008-2015).
