2016 AIChE Annual Meeting

Congratulations to everyone who attended the AIChE Annual Meeting held in San Francisco, CA from November 13 – 18, 2016 and presented a poster highlighting the cutting edge research that students & faculty are performing in CHE at URI.  Representing our Department were 4 faculty,  8 grad students, and 13 undergraduates.      

CHE Volleyball & Pizza

Wednesday, August 31, 2016 – The Faculty, Staff & Graduate Students had an exploding good time at this year’s Pizza and Volleyball game – allowing them to release energy before the start of classes.  There might have even been an implosion by strengths unknown!  

Jenike & Johanson helps students at AIChE Conference

Last fall and spring, Greg Mehos directed a group of four chemical engineering students who worked on an independent study project in which they measured the fundamental flow properties of pharmaceutical formulations.  The students presented their work at the AIChE Northeast Regional Student Conference last spring – they finished third!  

Kelsey Conahan ’16
