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.
Phillips 66 takes investment in the future seriously. For years, the company has partnered with ChBE, supporting the department’s students, facilities and events along with other CU departments and programs.
The ChBE co-op program is a professional development education program that allows undergraduate students to alternate professional work experiences with classroom coursework. Students typically complete one year of work at their co-op company, either working continuously or alternating their work experience with academic terms.
Congratulations to all of our Spring 2013 ChBE graduates!

ChBE graduate students hosted 87 middle school students on May 11 for a Science & Engineering Field Day at the Jennie Smoly Caruthers Biotechnology Building (JSCBB). Students traveled from across the Denver-metro area, as far north as Loveland and as far south as Littleton, to take part in the day’s activities.
We are thrilled to welcome new ChBE office manager Liz Eckstein, an operations professional with more than 15 years of experience in the field.
