Celebrating our GRADUATES

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most of the world has been practicing social distancing in order to reduce the spread of the virus. For the University of Arkansas, this meant moving all spring 2020 classes to remote instruction, cancelling all of the spring awards and celebration events, and postponing spring commencement to the Fall of 2020. This has impacted us all, but perhaps none more so than our graduating students who were once set to finish off their final semesters with a bang.

The University of Arkansas will recognize its spring 2020 graduates online, but the Ralph E. Martin Department of Chemical Engineering wants to specifically honor our graduates. Each week, we will upload a short tribute video recognizing individual students.

What is Chemical Engineering?

Chemical engineers have been improving people's lives for more than a century. From innovations in medical diagnostic tool development, recycling, disease treatment, biofuel production, and the development of smaller, faster computer chips, the processes and products chemical engineers have helped create touch every aspect of our lives. Chemical engineering uniquely intertwines the creation, design, operation, and optimization of processes that derive practical benefits from chemical or physical changes. In short, chemical engineers apply the principles of chemistry and engineering to solve practical problems.
