ChemE Classrooms to Careers

UW ChemE offers Creating Change: From Chemical Engineering Classrooms to Careers, and exploratory course open to all students interested in learning about chemical engineering.

Through faculty talks, alumni panels and laboratory demonstrations, students will learn about the applications of chemical engineering principles as they are applied to solving some of the world's greatest challenges.

Each panel focuses on a different field, and all are open to the public. Feel free to join us in-person on Tuesdays from 2:30-3:20 p.m. in SMI 221. There is an option to attend virtually via Zoom, and all lectures will be recorded.

UW students wishing to receive credit can register for CHEM E 201 (2 cr).
