Graduate Seminar Series

Each academic year, the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering (CBE) presents the CBE Graduate Seminar Series. Chemical engineering experts from around the U.S. present a one-hour lecture that highlights a popular topic in chemical engineering research. CBE graduate students are required to attend with CH E 601 (Seminar) course credit; however, the lectures are open free of charge to any Iowa State faculty, staff and students, and to the public. Seminars are typically held 11 a.m. to noon on various Thursdays, normally at at 171 Durham Center. Refreshments are typically served 10:30-11 a.m. at 2061 Sweeney Hall.
