See what others had to say regarding our 2014 event:


It was very well organized and the oral and poster presentations were excellent. This symposium is a great platform for graduate students to network with industry representatives and for industry to be informed of the research conducted in the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering department.

– Shwetha Ramkumar, ExxonMobil


I definitely came away with a better understanding of the work being performed by our CE students and being able to speak to some of the students about market applications for the projects they were working on was quite stimulating.  Thanks again for allowing me to be a part of this meeting.

– Jay Dahlman, OSU Technology Commercialization Office
