Versatility Pays Off for Chemical, Environmental Engineering Majors
Students in the Spotlight
Birth of a Diplomat
Leah Kaplan – Flinn Scholar, Tau Beta Pi president, Freeman Medal recipient, former Lego guru, and 2018 chemical engineering graduate – was the only undergraduate selected for the 2017 AAAS international diplomacy and leadership conference in Washington, D.C.This is an avenue where I can be the voice of science and technology, and bring in the voice of developing nations to make sure we’re helping everyone.
High-Achieving Namrah Habib
Namrah Habib – member of AIAA’s 20 Twenties group, recipient of the 2018 outstanding senior Robie Gold Medal, and a double major in chemical engineering and aerospace engineering – is a Churchill Scholar headed to Cambridge University for her graduate studies.The best thing about UA for me is the people I met here. Without those people, I wouldn’t have the opportunities I did.
Lead Authorship, Before Graduation
Joe Schlosser is among the first University of Arizona undergraduates to double-major in chemical engineering and environmental engineering – and he’ll be the first CHEE student in recent history to graduate with a first authorship, for a 2017 paper on wildfire emissions.I just want to help people. I’ve wanted to help people, for as long as I can remember.
