Matthews GS1 Wins AIChE Student Design Competition
First-year CBE Ph.D. student Logan Matthews recently received First Prize in the 2013 American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) Student Design Competition (Individual Category), for work done during his senior year at Michigan State University. Each year, practicing chemical engineers from a designated company devise and judge a student contest problem that typifies a real, working, chemical engineering design situation. The problem’s solution requires a wide range of skills in calculation and evaluation of both technical data and economic factors. Matthews will receive his award at the 2013 AIChE Annual Meeting next month in San Francisco, and will have the opportunity to present his work in a session at the meeting on the National Student Design competition, on Monday, November 4. For additional information, see the press release issued by Michigan State’s College of Engineering. Congratulations, Logan!
