Distinguished Young Scholars Seminar 2015

Distinguished Young Scholars Seminar 2015

The Department of Chemical Engineering has held the Distinguished Young Scholars Seminar Series annually since 2011. Each year, a panel of ChemE grad students invites a distinguished group of postdoctoral researchers and graduate students selected from the large pool of national applicants to visit Seattle to present their research at the department's summer seminar. The top speaker chosen by the panel will also receive an iPad.

Seminars are held on Mondays 4:00 - 5:00pm in PAA A110, with a social to follow in the Benson Hall lobby.
