Each year an Undergraduate Research Symposium is held in the Department of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering. The symposium gives students the opportunity to demonstrate the product of their research efforts and their creativity in solving problems with the mentoring of their research advisors. This year 11 posters were presented by undergraduate students, and corporate partners of the department judged the competition. The symposium is planned and organized by the local Omega Chi Epsilon (OXE) chapter and the Department of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering.
Many thanks to the Symposium Planning Committee for a smooth functioning event. Much planning and organizing is contributed by Omega Chi Epsilon (OXE) officers Lisa Alvin (President), Peter Rapp (Vice President/Service Chair), and Susan Dolinaki (Social Chair). OXE is an undergraduate chemical engineering honors society.
