What advice would you give other students?
“No matter what happens, finish what you start. Don’t be afraid to do more and get involved on campus. Don’t be satisfied with being average; it’s easy to be average, but it takes time and dedication to be great. Nothing great comes easy or happens overnight.”

Course DescriptionBiomass Energy Conv ThermoChem
This course provides the student with a technical understanding of biomass energy conversions with a focus on thermal-chemical conversions (e.g., liquefaction, pyrolysis, gasification, combustion) of plant and waste compounds into useful energy sources such as torrified wood, char, bio-oils, synthesis gas. The focus of the course includes both small-scale and production-level energy systems designed to convert energy crops and waste streams into useable energy sources and products for chemicals, liquid and gaseous fuels, heat and electricity. Prerequisite: RENG 210 or RENG 310, and CHEM 101 or CHEM 121 3 credits (2 hours of lecture and 3 hours of laboratory), spring semester
