Support Chemical Engineering
Chemical Engineering Chair’s Fund
Monies received by the Chemical Engineering Chair’s Fund are unrestricted operating funds that are used where needed in the program. In the past, such funds have been used to send students to conferences where they were presenting papers, travel for the Chair to conferences and committee meetings, visiting speakers, new student welcome events, office equipment, and instructional software.
Chemical Engineering Various Donors
Corporate gifts are to be used to update facilities in various undergraduate laboratories such as Practices, Process and Wind and to provide additional equipment, supplies, maintenance and instructional materials used in teaching these laboratories. Operating funds are spent under the direction of the Lab Instructional Professor with the approval of the Chair, following the restrictions of the donor. We encourage minimal restrictions to ensure the funds can be applied to the most critical needs. Gifts of any size are greatly appreciated.
Neal R. Amundson Endowed Chair
Known as the “Father of Modern Chemical Engineering,” Dr. Amundson’s impact on the field was substantiated by his pioneering research in chemical reaction engineering and his role as one of the leading engineering educators in the country. We would like to memorialize his impact to the field by establishing this endowment at the University of Houston.
Organization of Chemical Engineering Graduate Students Fund
Funds received by the Organization of Chemical Engineering Graduate Students are used for its Annual Symposium, awards presented to the outstanding speaker of the symposium and best poster representation of data presented at the Symposium and to support travel to various national conferences for the members and to support collaborative functions with the undergraduate students.
Chemical Engineering Scholarship
This fund is used for tuition scholarships.
