Congratulations to the CU Chem-E-Car Team, who won 2nd in this year's regional Chem-E-Car Poster Competition and 4th in the Chem-E-Car Competition.
The team narrowly missed a 3rd-place finish - and a spot in the national competition this fall - due to a rally from the very last car in the competition.
The 2016 AIChE Rocky Mountain Student Regional Conference was held this April at the University of Arizona.

A group of ChBE grad students are victors of a most unusual competition: the 2016 Coffin Races at Frozen Dead Guy Days in Nederland. This eccentric festival is inspired by a cryogenically frozen Norwegian man who resides in the small mountain town 16 miles west of Boulder. The event is known for its music, cuisine and its and ice- and death-themed competitions, including frozen turkey bowling and a hearse parade.

Congratulations to ChBE alumnus Nicholas Sandoval, who has accepted a position as assistant professor in Tulane’s Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. Nich earned his B.S. in chemical engineering from CU-Boulder in 2006 and his PhD in 2011 as part of Ryan Gill’s research group. He most recently worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Delaware.
Best of luck in the Big Easy, Nich!

In the 2017 US News & World Report graduate program rankings published this week, ChBE moved up to 15th place. This is an improvement over last year's ranking of 16th.
It is because of our outstanding alumni, students, faculty, staff and partners that we continue to be a top-tier department!

Congratulations to department alumna Tara Lovestead (PhD'04), who is one of only 105 researchers nationwide to earn a 2016 Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE). Tara was advised by Chris Bowman and now works for the National Institute of Standards and Technology as a Research Chemist. Great job, Tara!
