Chemical Engineering Summer Institute

Chemical Engineering Camp

Embark on an exciting journey into the world of Chemical Engineering with our dynamic summer camp! Chemical engineering, an artful blend of science and mathematics, is the key to crafting invaluable materials that shape our everyday lives. As a chemical engineer, you'll be the architect of scientific breakthroughs, transforming them into scalable production methods and making essential products more economically accessible.

Picture yourself orchestrating the large-scale creation of everyday necessities - from food and clothing to energetics, fuels, power, medicines, and plastics. In our Chemical Engineering camp, you'll discover the magic behind this process and explore the genius fusion of molecular sciences (chemistry and biology), physical sciences (physical chemistry and physics), analytical sciences (mathematics and computer programming), and engineering that defines Chemical Engineering (ChE).

Get ready for an immersive experience as our camp dives into captivating topics, including:

  • Hands-On Creation of Plastics and Polymers: Roll up your sleeves and dive into the exciting world of creating plastics and polymers, where education meets recreation in a hands-on, engaging experience.
  • Mastering Chemical Separation through Filtration Techniques: Learn the art of chemical separation and filtration, gaining practical skills that showcase the precision and innovation inherent in chemical engineering.
  • Unleashing Sustainable Resources for Electricity Generation: Explore the potential of sustainable resources and witness firsthand how chemical engineering can contribute to the generation of electricity in an eco-friendly way.
  • Navigating the Expansive Unit Operation Lab: Step into the heart of chemical engineering as you explore the vast Unit Operation Lab, unraveling the mysteries of this fascinating discipline.
  • Creation of Biofuels from Biomass: Delve into high temperature and pressure reactors and reactions to understand biomass conversion into biofuels; liquefaction, separation, and distillation.

Through these enriching experiences, you won't just grasp the intricacies of chemical engineering – you'll develop a deep appreciation for the profound impact this field has on our daily lives. Join us this summer for an adventure that combines education, innovation, and a whole lot of fun!
