Research Experience for Undergraduates

The Chemical Engineering program will host undergraduate students this upcoming summer in association with a newly awarded Research Experience for Undergraduates. The program is funded by the National Science Foundation and open to U.S. citizens and permanent residents.

CO2 Chemical Engineering Opportunities and Challenges

The Department of Chemical Engineering is pleased to announce our National Science Foundation Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates program for 2024. Participants will work with faculty and graduate students in a dynamic and cutting-edge environment while performing research involving:

  • Understanding the processes and materials for capturing CO2at the power generation source.
  • Chemical conversion of CO2 to fuels and chemicals through catalytic and electrochemical processes.
  • Reducing CO2 production utilizing biomass for fuels and chemicals.

Seminars, workshops, visits to local industries, and social events are also planned throughout the summer.
