Chair Welcome

Welcome to the ASEE Chemical Engineering Division’s website! The Chemical Engineering Division (ChED) is a home for those engaged in educating chemical engineers who seek to pursue new, effective approaches to teaching and to conduct research in chemical engineering pedagogy. We exist as a Division to learn from, to support, and to advise each other by bring together a wide range of ideas, experiences, capabilities, and backgrounds unified by a commitment to teaching chemical engineering effectively.

As the current Chair of the ChED, I would like to invite you to engage with us not only through this website but also in person at our Annual Meeting.  We seek to recognize outstanding work amongst our colleagues through a robust awards program. And our journal Chemical Engineering Education is a premier discipline-based engineering education journal that, along with our Conference Proceedings, has global impact in disseminating effective and efficient approaches to our work.

All of your ChED officers serve because we want to engage with you and help bring chemical engineering educators together. If you have a connection to chemical engineering as an undergraduate or graduate student, as a faculty member, or an industrial practitioner, you have a place with us!

Feel free to reach out to me if you’d like to learn more about the ASEE ChED.
– David Silverstein, Chair
