We Are ChE: Entering a Golden Age [Blog Series]

February 20, 2013

Enjoy a series of 12 blog posts on ChEnected about who ChEs are, what we’re doing, and where we’re going. I’ll look at trends, consider the wide range of our abilities and achievements, and write about some of the core and new directions we are seeing.

These topics are especially important right now because it looks like we are in the early stages of a new Golden Age of Chemical Engineering.

You can click on any of the individual posts or read all 12 in the series.
