Centennial Celebration

Centennial Then and Now

This academic year marks the department’s centennial celebration!

In 1915, the first chemical engineering undergraduates were enrolled under the guidance of department founder Dr. Eugene P. Schoch. Over the last 100 years, we have educated more than 8,000 engineers in a program distinguished by a culture of research and innovation, entrepreneurial spirit, interdisciplinary problem-solving, scholarship, and technological impact. Through their leadership and technical contributions, our graduates have transformed economies, benefited society, and improved the quality of life. Our world-class faculty has pioneered research addressing major challenges in energy and the environment, human health, materials, manufacturing, and much more. The centennial is an opportunity to showcase the department’s impact and celebrate its unique fellowship.

Join us for the grand finale weekend of our centennial year April 15-16, 2016—see more in our events section and watch your inboxes for RSVP information.
