JJ Hamon recipient of 2015 Sir Keith Murdoch Fellowship form American Australian Association
Congratulations to JJ Hamon, Chemical Engineering graduate student, who was recently chosen as the recipient of the 2015 Sir Keith Murdoch Fellowship from the American Australian Association. The grant will cover part of the cost of one year of research to be conducted in Australia as part of his doctoral studies. He plans to spend one year at Monash University in Melbourne.
Shirley-Luz Enombo selected as outstanding mentor for OU's Chevron Phillips Scholar Mentor
Shirley-Luz Enombo, an OU senior in chemical engineering, has been selected as the outstanding mentor for OU’s Chevron Phillips Scholar-Mentor Program, which selects outstanding upperclassmen to mentor the sophomore chemical engineering students.
Shirley-Luz has served as a program mentor for the last three semesters, said Department Chair Lance Lobban. Mentor activities include attending social events, offering enrollment advice, seeking internships and undergraduate research opportunities, tutoring, helping with resumes and even accompanying sophomores to the campus career fair.
Katie Crowley win National SWE Student Engineering Challenge
Katie Crowley (ChemE) and Jackie Bradshaw (ME) won the National SWE Student Engineering Challenge. Katie said that their idea was to create 100% biodegradable packaging made from oat bran, which was a waste product when they are making the Quaker Oats– we titled our project “Packaging for the Environment.” With this idea, PepsiCo would be repurposing a waste product that they would dispose of otherwise and since the packaging is biodegradable it would reduce the carbon footprint of the company, globally.Photo

$30 million in gifts from Janet and Jim Gallogly
Gallogy's gift to CBME for Undergraduate Laboratory
Gallogly’s gift will also renovate one of the most important laboratories in the college, the 1,800-square-foot Chemical Engineering Undergraduate Laboratory, which is used for two vitally important practice courses required for all chemical engineering majors. In the Unit Operations Lab course students in their junior year gain hands-on experience with many functions typical of the chemical process industry, including unit operations and measurements. The Chemical Engineering Design Lab course affords students in their senior year opportunities to conduct more complex experiments for large-scale design projects. The lab is also frequently used for demonstrations, engineering camps and outreach activities involving K-12 students and their families.
