  • Ambient and Elevated Temperature Creep and Fatigue Testing Facility

    Location:

    B338 Engineering Building, MSU, East Lansing, MI, 48824.

    Description:

    Within the Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science, there are 6 creep frames and one state-of-the-art thermomechanical fatigue testing machine capable of performing experiments at temperatures up to 1200 C and loads up to 10kN in vacuum (10-8 torr), inert gas, or air environments. In addition there is metallographic equipment for preparing samples for testing as well as for microscopic examination. The facilities are available to researchers from across campus and from outside the MSU community.

  • Chemical Engineering and Materials Science Department Research Forum (May 2017)

    Dates:

    Thursday, May 11, 2017.  8:30 am - 5:00 pm

    Location:

    Huntington Club at Spartan Stadium on the campus of Michigan State University, 325 W. Shaw Lane, East Lansing, MI, 48824

    Description:

    The 14th Annual ChEMS Research Forum will showcase Departmental research advances in the areas of:

    * Energy and Sustainability
    * Nanotechnology and Materials
    * Biotechnology and Biomedical Engineering

    The one-day program will feature two invited plenary speakers, oral presentations from faculty and students, and an extended poster session describing the latest department research results.  Registration, lunch, and refreshments are complimentary.

  • Foundations in Chemical Engineering (Online Courses and Bridging Program)

    Description:

    The Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science offers Foundations in Chemical Engineering online courses and a bridging program.  Two courses are offered:

    • CHE 804, Foundations in Chemical Engineering I
    • CHE 805, Foundations in Chemical Engineering II

    The courses cover the key concepts from the chemical engineering undergraduate curriculum, including fundamentals of material and energy balances, thermodynamics, chemical reaction engineering, fluid flow and heat transfer, and mass transfer and separations. The courses can be used in either of two ways:

    • Taken individually, these courses are designed for scientists and engineers from disciplines other than chemical engineering who want to pursue graduate degrees in the latter field or who need to incorporate techniques and information from that field into their career. Because of its cross-disciplinary characteristics, chemical engineering offers exciting job opportunities for those who combine preparation in that field with a background in other fields of science and engineering. Environmental engineers, chemists, biochemists, mechanical engineers, agricultural engineers, and food scientists are some of the professionals who have taken these courses to enhance their own technical backgrounds. Satisfactory performance in ChE804/ChE805 is recognized with a Certificate of Completion in Foundations of Chemical Engineering for each course.
    • The courses also provide a Bridging Program into a chemical engineering M.S. or PhD. degree program for students who have a non-chemical engineering B.S. degree. The courses provide sufficient background to prepare students to enter a graduate chemical engineering degree program. Participants are expected to have completed coursework in calculus, physics, physical chemistry, and organic chemistry.

    These courses are used by MSU, and other chemical engineering departments as the core of a bridging program. Contact the graduate student recruiter at the school of your choice to discuss plans to use the MSU bridging program.

  • From Lab Bench to Plant Workshop (May 2017)

    Dates:

    May 2017

    Location:

    MSU Bioeconomy Institute, 242 Howard Avenue, Holland, MI, 49424

    Description:

    The MSU Bioeconomy Institute in Holland, Michigan, hosts a week-long, hands-on, chemical process scale-up workshop. The workshop will familiarize participants with the transitional issues encountered in moving a chemical process from the laboratory bench to a chemical plant. The workshop is available for credit (4 hours) or as non-credit.

  • NanoMSU.org

    Description:

    MSU researchers have collaborated to create NanoMSU.org, a web site designed to facilitate nanotechnology research and education by publicizing MSU's research expertise, facilities, and educational programs, providing a central point of contact for off-campus inquiries, distributing nanotechnology-related information of general interest, and encouraging new synergistic collaborations. The site lists participants and their areas of research, research centers, relevant news items, and other national nanotechnology research efforts.
