On April 10, 2013, the School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering will host a symposium to honor Amyn Teja, Regents' Professor Emeritus at Georgia Tech. Teja, who joined the School as an Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering in 1980, officially retired from his position as Regents’ Professor and Grassman Foundation Professor of Chemical Engineering in June 2012, although he still continues to teach and advise graduate students.Teja received his BS and PhD degrees from Imperial College London and taught at Loughborough University in the United Kingdom before taking up his position at Georgia Tech. He has authored nearly 300 articles and made more than 200 presentations, based on his research on thermodynamic properties and separations, as well as nanomaterials. He is an American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) Fellow and received the Institute Award for Excellence in Industrial Gases Technology from the AIChE in 2002.All Georgia Tech students, faculty, and staff are invited to attend the symposium, which will feature eminent speakers such as John Prausnitz, Professor of the Graduate School at the University of California, Berkeley; E. Dendy Sloan, University Professor Emeritus at the Colorado School of Mines; Stan Sandler, H.B. duPont Chair of Chemical Engineering at the University of Delaware; and Ralph Diguilio, Vice President of Research and Development for Performance Products at Huntsman Corporation. Established in 1901, the School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering (ChBE) is one of eight schools in the College of Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Ranked among the top ten engineering programs in the nation, the school is also one of the oldest and most diverse programs. With 800 undergraduates, 200 graduate students, and more than 40 full-time faculty members, it is also one of the largest. ChBE faculty members are involved in 13 comprehensive areas of education, research, and commercialization with a strategic focus on energy and sustainability, biotechnology, materials and nanotechnology, and complex systems.
