MSUB Process Plant Technology Lecture Recordings

Following are recorded lectures from the Process Plant Technology prgram and Montana State University Billings. I record the lectures to accomodate students who can't make it to class due to work, sickness, or other demands. Please contact Andy Sullivan at andrew.sullivan3@msubillings.edu if you are experiencing difficulties with any recordings.
