Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

Undergraduate Research Symposium

At the University of Illinois Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, undergraduate students actively work alongside our world-class faculty on a variety of research projects. Every year in April, students have the opportunity to present their work as part of the Undergraduate Research Symposium. In 2018, the department celebrated the tenth year of holding the symposium.

The event is organized by Omega Chi Epsilon, the national honor society for chemical engineering. It is an opportunity for students to showcase their research and network with alumni from industry who serve as judges. More information can be obtained by contacting the student group at illinoisoxe@gmail.com. Alumni interested in volunteering as a judge for a future symposium can email chemeng@illinois.edu.
