About the BASF Distinguished Lecture Series
The Wayne State University Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science is welcoming five members of the U.S. National Academy of Engineering during the 2019-20 academic year to stimulate idea-focused conversations about emerging growth areas such as such as membrane technology, chemical process and control, polymers and rheology, performance materials and connected plants, and catalysis. This partnership between Wayne State and BASF — the largest chemical producer in the world, with a footprint in more than 80 countries — is intended to create another pathway to connect students with professional leaders and to enhance interaction among industry experts.
