Graduate Student Seminar
Welcome to the graduate student seminar. This seminar is offered every Fall and Winter semesters and includes technical presentations by graduate students, faculty members, and guests. The objectives of the seminar course are to:
- Learn from world-class researchers about solutions to contemporary scientific and engineering problems through the application of fundamental principles
- Identify and communicate to others principles of workplace safety
- Foster collaboration with other researchers and institutions
Each graduate seminar begins with a safety presentation. The safety moment includes discussion related to working in research labs or in industry.
Date: Thursday - 4:00-4:50 pm, Mountain Time
Location: 254 CB
Office: 350M CB
The course is 0.5 credit hours. The course is cross listed as CH EN 691 (master's candidates) and CH EN 791 (doctoral candidates). It is graded as Pass / Fail. Students are expected to attend all scheduled sessions for a Pass. See posted syllabus for additional information.
Graduate seminars are held every week on Thursday at 4 PM Mountain Time. Seminars consist of industrial topics and academic research in chemical engineering and related disciplines. The seminar speakers include individuals from industry, national labs and academia. A schedule of the seminars is provided below. Attendance at all seminars is required.
Speakers should plan to end at 4:40 to allow at least 10 minutes for questions and discussion.
