The Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering (CBE) saluted the recipients of scholarships and fellowships – and those who make them possible – in its annual Honors & Awards Banquet.
A total of 224 CBE undergraduate students have been awarded 280 department scholarships in the current academic year, and 18 graduate students are pursuing their education with the assistance of fellowships. Students who were present at the banquet were recognized in front of a large crowd that gathered in the Scheman Center, including many family members.
Student organizations, including the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) student chapter and the Chemical Engineering Graduate Student Organization (CEGSO) also shared the spotlight in the event, with AIChE handing out its annual faculty awards.
The banquet also featured the induction of former professor and chair Terry S. King to the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering Hall of Fame (detailed in a separate story).
