Course packages that do not have the minimum number of students will not be offered, but students may transfer to other packages.
We welcome each university to organize a group of students to study course packages in the beautiful campus of the University of British Columbia.
Many course packages have a minimum and maximum class size, so we encourage you to register your students early.
Participants will visit local breweries to establish links between theory and practice, and sample beers and wines from all around British Columbia, which is well known the quality and diversity of its products.
This course takes a technical look at beer and wine production, and a strong foundation in calculus, chemistry, and physics is therefore strongly recommended. Structure & properties of construction materials: Concrete, Asphalt, Steel, & wood, with emphasis on relationship between structures, mechanical properties, & durability. Students in groups carry out laboratory & field experiments to study the materials involved.
This course presents coffee production from this perspective, detailing each process step and exploring the underlying physical and chemical phenomena involved, from the cultivation of the coffee plants, through the heat and mass transfer involved in roasting and percolation, and through the engineering considerations that go into the design of coffee machines and disposable cups, while taking economics, sustainability, and ethics into consideration.
