2016 Sessions from the MPCs & Featured Lectures

Broaden your perspective in lively, informative and relevant discussions and presentations addressing today’s timeliest issues in chemical engineering. Be sure to grab a seat at two new sessions, "Meet the Presidents" and "3D Printing" where you will hear from innovators and experts from industry and academia.  

Meet the Presidents 

University Presidents with degrees in Chemical Engineering will address issues impacting higher education, and in particular, engineering education and professions.  The intent is to inform and stimulate a broad audience – academe, industry, and national laboratories – based on the unique perspective of a President.

3D Printing

3D printing, or additive manufacturing, has become an enabling technology in many fields, including applications in traditional chemical engineering process (developing internals for process plant equipment), as well as emerging areas such as bioengineering (tissue scaffolding). This session will offer an insight into the opportunity in 3D printing and where technology advances are headed.

Featured Speakers:

  • Joseph DeSimone, CEO and Co-founder, Carbon, Chancellor’s Eminent Professor of Chemistry, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; William R. Kenan Jr. Distinguished Professor of Chemical Engineering at North Carolina State University and of Chemistry at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

  • Christopher Spadaccini, Director, Center for Engineered Materials, Manufacturing and Optimization, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

  • Steve Wright, Eastman Chemical Company

  • Timothy Weber, HP Inc.
