• The Department of Chemical and Biological Engieering has teamed with the Art Department to create artistic, digital images that capture the essence of Chemical Engineering. Students from Kathleen Ruiz's Intermediate Digital Imaging course have created three unique canvases that will "come alive" to tell you a story.

  • Jane is a rising senior chemical engineering and economics dual major. She participates in electrochemical research with Professor Dinolfo at RPI and conducted research at UC Berkeley through the Center for Energy Efficient Electronics Science last summer. This summer, Jane is looking forward to an internship with Sandia National Labs in Livermore, CA, working on hydrogen fuel cell research. She is also on the RPI varsity field hockey team and is a member of Engineering Ambassadors, through which she conducts engineering outreach education to local high school and middle school students.
