Chemical Engineering Colloquium (CH E 590, Fall Semester)
Each Fall Semester, short presentations by faculty on their current research projects will be followed by a series of presentations on orientation topics such as computer facilities, library information services, documenting research, and laboratory safety.
Students will select their thesis research topics after completion of the faculty presentations, typically about 8 to 13 weeks following the start of the semester. All new graduate students are required to attend this one credit course. The grading system to be used will be an R grade.
Chemical Engineering Colloquium (CH E 590, Spring Semester)
This one credit course offered each Spring Semester gives graduate students the opportunity to develop their skills at giving oral research presentations and evaluating such presentations. All graduate students are required to take this course once during their tenure, and give one presentation on a topic of their choice.
Ph.D. students are required to present a talk at a technical society meeting, research seminar, or other professional forum in addition to the presentation they give in this class. Whether or not the student gives a presentation of their own, he or she must attend all the lectures and evaluate the lectures by the other graduate students.
The evaluation of a student's performance in the course will be based on the presentation of the individual student and his or her participation in the evaluation of other student's presentations. The grading system to be used will be an R grade.
