Letter from the Chair
February continues to be a very active month for Chemical Engineering at Northeastern University.
We held our second annual Chemical Engineering Day on Feb. 24 during National Engineer's Week with many exciting events including a presentation from a Nobel laureate, games from our students, and stand-up comedy by Prof. Landherr. We will also be busy planning for "Biomaterials Day," which will occur June 30 and will be completely run by our Society For Biomaterials Student Chapter. Our plenary talk will be given by Prof. David Williams, former editor of Biomaterials. We held our first ever alumni appreciation day, which featured ChemE Car, nanoparticle synthesis by our graduate students, and rooting for the Huskies basketball team.
As our department continues to grow (and the activities we hold), please be sure to keep in touch via LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, and by frequently visiting our website. I hope to see you soon!
