Georgia Tech’s School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering was established in 1901, making it one of the first chemical engineering programs in the country. With 800 undergraduates, 200 graduate students, and more than 40 full-time faculty members, it is also one of the largest.
The College of Engineering at Georgia Tech consistently ranks among the top five engineering colleges in the country.
Prof. Martha Grover, Prof.
Lakeshia Taite and I are in need of 3-4 undergraduate researchers to work
part time during SUMMER TERM, 2012 on two very interesting projects. One
involves understanding the chemical origins of life, and specifically, the role
played by polymeric biomolecules. The other involves developing polymer
structures for drug delivery.
Students accepted for this project
should be Juniors or Seniors in ChBE with a minimum GPA of 3.5. Students
will be expected to spend approximately 10 hours per week on the project, and
will be paid at the rate of $10 per hour. Continuation into the Fall is
possible, as is beginning work during the Spring. Students will be expected to
present their work at on-campus and off-campus colloquia. There is every
expectation that the students will be contributing authors on peer-reviewed
Students wishing to work for
technical elective credit rather than money are also welcome to apply.
Anyone wishing to be considered
should email me by 5 PM FRIDAY, MARCH 16. Please include a resume.

Our Dean of
Engineering, Dr. Gary May has stated, “We should be thinking creatively about what’s the next
issue that’s going to require engineering and technology solutions, so we can
get in front of it.”
This implies that as an engineering school we
should not only promote a curriculum that encourages engineering competence,
but one that discusses its implementation into the working world. As part of
Dr. Peterson's campus-wide Leadership Initiative, GT
StartUp engages the most ambitious young college students Georgia Tech has to
offer, providing personalized instruction and mentorship to help them maximize
their potential. We augment a rigorous Georgia Tech education with
leadership and professional development – but all of this is only possible by
the help of outstanding leaders like YOU.
generation of leaders in technology will address society's grand challenges by
augmenting engineering skills with an understanding of business principles.
GT StartUp is poised to reinvigorate our approach to education by
developing students into the drivers of innovation.”

Procter & Gamble (P&G) is offering a
unique opportunity for top Engineering students who are graduating between December
2012 and June 2013 to visit and encounter the excitement and challenge of
Engineering at P&G. TETRE (Top Engineering Talent Recruiting Event) is a week
long program that will take place in August 2012, during which you will
experience firsthand how engineers are helping drive the company
At TETRE, you will experience the full spectrum
of how P&G leverages engineering skills to:
Research & Development upstream Innovation;
ideas and concepts into reality in a fast-paced production world;
and build P&G’s production systems, considered world-class in our
sustainable supply chain models that influence and drive the business
model choices of our retail partners in the Consumer Products industry.
You will have the opportunity to meet with
some of Procter & Gamble's top leadership, participate in cutting edge
technology exercises, and experience real business problem solving, and you could leave this event with an
offer to work full time at Procter & Gamble upon graduation!
the TETRE event will be focusing on Top Engineering Talent seeking or interested
in Automation/Control Systems Engineering.
The TETRE event will take place the week of
August 13, 2012 in Cincinnati, Ohio. All expenses for this event are paid
Engineers Week is February 19th - 25th and will incorporate
a variety of events and competitions in which your members can participate.
As you may already know, E-Week is held annually in February
to celebrate the engineering profession and the contributions of engineer's in
our communities. Tau Beta Pi organizes multiple events every year for the
entire campus to participate in. These events are designed to promote teamwork,
creativity, and fun.
For 2012, we have scheduled nine fun and exciting events:
Monday Feb 20 -
Location: Skiles Walkway
Location: Skiles Walkway
Tuesday Feb 21 -
Skyscraper Structures Competition Location: Klaus
Paper Airplane Competition
Location: Top of hill on Atlantic Drive
Wednesday Feb 22- Egg Drop
Location: Calloway Plaza
Thursday Feb 23- Rocket
Unlike previous years, this year we will be holding friendly
competitions among the schools of engineering (AE, BME, ME etcs…). And to
top this off, we will have PRIZES for the winners (1st place is $75, 2nd place
is $50). Also, the organization that accumulates the most points will win
a Trophy!! We hope to see you there!!!
