Graduate Seminar Series

ChE Graduate Seminar Series

The School of Chemical Engineering sponsors a Graduate Seminar Series in the fall and spring semesters made possible by our generous supporters of the program. Experts from various areas of chemical engineering, including energy, materials, chemicals, and biomedical, share the latest research in their fields. The seminars are held on Tuesdays from 3:00 – 4:00 p.m. with a reception following. A complete list of the seminar dates, speakers, and topics for the current academic year, as well as past years, is shown below. If you are interested in attending a seminar, please contact us at for more details.
