Letter from the Chair
We have decided to implement monthly newsletters to keep our colleagues, alumni, and friends abreast of the plethora of activity surrounding the Department of Chemical Engineering at Northeastern.
New highlights include a summary of scholarly activities (including published articles), more frequent updates on events and awards, and student highlights.
As you can see, we have started 2016 out with a bang with news of Prof. Shashi Murthy becoming a fellow of AIMBE (representing the highest two percent of the medical and biological engineering field), Prof. Art Coury hosting a workshop in China to improve research collaborations, and our largest incoming spring graduate student body ever. We are also happy to announce that Dick Giberti (E'65 and PhD'70) will be our new Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) Chair. Prof. Kate Ziemer also brought five of our undergraduates to the 2015 AIChE Gala in New York City.
With all of this news, how can we not start publishing monthly newsletters?
