ChBE Pioneers Active Learning Tools

May 29, 2013

ChBE has been on the forefront of innovative teaching for years. The department was an early adopter of student response systems (clickers), which have been used in some ChBE courses with ConcepTests and peer instruction for almost a decade. ConcepTests challenge students with qualitative questions that are not answered by memorization.  More than 1,400 ChBE ConcepTests have been prepared in fields such as fluids, thermodynamics, and kinetics. 

Arun Tholudur

Arun Tholudur, ChE PhD'98

May 28, 2013

Arun Tholudur received his PhD in 1998 under the direction of ChBE Professor Fred Ramirez, exploring advanced modeling and optimization techniques applied to bioprocesses.  Specifically, he investigated artificial neural networks in combination with fundamental mass balance equations to model cell growth and protein production. These networks were coupled with dynamic programming algorithms to maximize protein production.
