Green Sorbs: Taking their Capstone Design project beyond the symposium

While the fourth-year Capstone Design project is often regarded as the culmination of the knowledge and experience gained over the course of an undergrad degree, some students think of it as a new beginning rather than an end. Consider, for example, fourth-year chemical engineering students Kien Tran, Jack Anderson, Skylar Bone and Olsi Goxhaj, aka Green Sorbs. They have taken their Capstone Design project, an environmentally responsible, non-mechanical method of oil spill recovery, beyond the 2018 Capstone Design Symposium to a series of competitions. And their efforts have been recognized and applauded.

CHE embraces 3MT

When Chemical Engineering hosted its departmental heat of the Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition on February 8th, the room was packed with audience members keen to learn more about our research-based masters and doctoral students’ exciting investigations. Eleven graduate students took turns presenting the high points of the research they have spent years conducting – using one static PowerPoint slide, language that could be understood by the general public…and within only three minutes.
