ASEE Summer School


From July 29th to August 3rd six of the assistant professors from the Cain Department of Engineering (Profs. Chris Arges, Bhuvnesh Bharti, Kunlun Ding, James Dorman, Adam Melvin, and Elizabeth Melvin) attended the ASEE Chemical Engineering Faculty Summer School at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC. The goal of the workshop “was to promote excellence and pertinence in the teaching of chemical engineering.” A total of 174 professors from 94 institutions of higher learning were instructed by 74 senior chemical engineering faculty members. Attendees participated in workshops, plenaries, and networking events to learn new teaching methods and foster new collaborations. Three evenings were capped off with a poster session which allowed attendees to present new educational approaches to teaching and outreach with the top posters selected each night by a panel of judges. Prof. Adam Melvin was selected as one of the 2017 ASEE Chemical Engineering Summer School Poster Awardees for his poster entitled “ENGage LSU: How to organize and implement an engineering outreach day for middle schoolers.”
