We are inviting exceptional graduate students and postdocs to speak at the 13th Annual Coordinated Science Laboratory (CSL) Student Conference, scheduled for February 21-23, 2018 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Dr.  Spencer has organized a field trip for his class, CEE472, to visit the SOM exhibit that is part of the Chicago Biennial, as well as to tour SOM headquarters (see schedule below).  Some additional seats are available on the bus that will be allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis. 

If you are interested in participating in this field trip, please send an e-mail to Dr. Spencer as soon as possible:

Starting Spring 2018, a new course will be offered in Materials Science and Engineering concerning transport in polymers. This graduate level course will cover diffusion of small molecules including gases, liquids, dyes, drugs, and ions starting from fundamental principles. See attachments.
