Katie Crowley win National SWE Student Engineering Challenge
October 26 2015
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

Gallogy's gift to CBME for Undergraduate Laboratory
April 23 2015
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.
