Our Graduate Research Symposium is an exciting, comprehensive event that showcases the high quality, multidisciplinary research conducted in our department, and spans diverse areas such as molecular engineering of novel materials, nanotechnology, bioengineering, and molecular modeling.
Each semester the department hosts a weekly research seminar series for faculty, students, alumni, and chemical engineering professionals. We invite interesting speakers—people at the top of their fields—who are conducting creative research in chemical and biological engineering.
