MS – PhD Mixer
MS students need to decide on their research areas by the end of their first semester. Chemical Engineering in CMU has 6 broad areas of research- Biomolecular Engineering, Complex Fluids Engineering, Catalysis and Surface Science, Environmental Engineering, Process Systems Engineering and Energy Science and Engineering. The MS students were handed a list of the available projects by the department. The MS students interacted with the PhD students during this event and gained valuable insight which helped them decide on their MS Thesis.
Chinese New Year
We celebrated the year of the Goat / Sheep by hosting the Chinese new year in the department. We arranged for Chinese delicacies which was savoured by all. This was a good opportunity for all the MS and PhD students to interact with each other outside the academic environment.
