New: PSE!

PSE has launched! Welcome to the new on-line community for chemical process systems engineering education. This is the place for professors, students, and professionals to share ideas and material relating to PSE education. Check out the site, and visit the discussion forums. Do you have material to contribute? We’d love to hear from you.


This website was suggested by various PSE professors who are members of the CAChE corporation, a non-profit dedicated to advancing computer-based chemical engineering education. Originally coinciding with the launch of the book Learn Aspen Plus in 24 Hours, which contains 12 2-hour tutorials which teach how to use the software, we hope to use this website to foster additional tutorials, modules, and ideas from the rest of the PSE community. For example, if you have more modules to add, subjects to cover that are not covered in the book, or teaching methodologies to share, this is the place to do it. Do you have modules or materials for other software related to PSE? We want that too. We hope to peer review these and curate a collection of high-quality materials for use in education and self-instruction, and foster quality discussion and networking.
