I welcome you to academic year 2022-23!
Two years ago, we took a huge step forward when Linda and Bipin Doshi made their remarkable $10 million gift. Their generosity gave our department a new name – the Doshi Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering – and a permanent foundation for growth through faculty, fellowship and equipment endowments.
We continued to grow our research and promote faculty and student success in the past year. Our research expenditures exceeded $1 million, a new record that demonstrates our increasing scholarly activities. Our chemical engineering graduate program moved up to 87 in rankings compiled by U.S. News & World Report. The department developed a new graduate certificate program in carbon management engineering. Our Industrial Advisory Council and Academy of Chemical Engineers launched a $1 million fundraising campaign to further the department’s excellence in scholarship, education and research.
I am thrilled about what we have accomplished in the past year. I sincerely invite you to continue supporting us to sustain our competitiveness in education and research.
