Changing Face of Chemical Engineering Education

WHAT: Northeastern University's Center for Advanced Microgravity Materials Processing (CAMMP), a NASA Space Partnership Development Center, will host experts from the United States, South Africa and the Pacific Rim to discuss "The Changing Face of Chemical Engineering Education World-wide"

WHY: Chemical Engineering education is at a crossroads. With biotechnology continuing to flourish and nanotechnology set to explode, colleges and universities must adapt their curriculum to ensure that graduates are receiving an education that qualifies them to work in this rapidly changing field. But how best to do so? In an increasingly global economy, does the world view that the U.S. has little idea of what is going on outside its own borders when it comes to chemical engineering education matter? Is it true? These questions and many others will be addressed by our distinguished panel.

Director of CAMMP, Professor of Chemical Engineering, Northeastern University

Robert Armstrong
Chevron Professor and Head of Chemical Engineering, M.I.T.

David Wood
Emeritus Professor, Department of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering, University of Melbourne
