Graduate seminars are held every week on Thursday at 11 AM Mountain Time. Seminars consist of industrial topics and academic research in chemical engineering and related disciplines. The seminar speakers include professors, graduate students, industrial collaborators, and other guests. Attendance at all seminars (except the opening social) is required. Please register your attendance on Learning Suite. Students may make up seminars by attending seminars by watching or attending other relevant seminars at BYU or online with instructor approval.

The seminar was held in 325 EB (Engineering Building) but is now a virtual session due to COVID-19 and social distancing requirements in classrooms. Speakers should plan to end at 11:40 AM to allow at least 10 minutes for questions and discussion.
