Summer 2018 Undergraduate Research Program

Friday, June 22, 2018

KU’s Department of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering (C&PE) launched an undergraduate research program this summer. A total of 9 undergraduates from KU have been awarded $3,000 scholarships to participate in the program.  In addition, three undergraduates affiliated with a project in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (C&EE) are also participating in the program activities, two of whom are from West Virginia University.  Four of the students are doing research with faculty affiliated with the Center for Environmentally Beneficial Catalysis (CEBC).  Claudia Bode, CEBC's education director, meets weekly with the group to provide safety, ethics, communication and other skill-building activities.
