Beyond Learning

Chemical engineering students at Michigan Tech do more than just study this extensive field; they graduate with a unique set of skills gleaned from hands-on lab experience and competitive course work. The Department of Chemical Engineering has one of the most expansive learning laboratories in the discipline worldwide—measuring in at 6,500 square feet, the Unit Operations Lab is a pilot-plant-scale educational facility dedicated to chemical processing. Combined with world-class faculty, this program ensures our students are prepared to succeed in industry and beyond.

My research interests are in chemical process safety and loss prevention. Flammability Increased emphasis on the prevention of fires and explosions has led to a need for high-quality flammability data covering a wide range of compositions of fuel/oxygen/nitrogen. The purpose of this project is to 1) improve the experimental method for characterization, 2) . . .
