Assistant Professor Robert Nedwick retires

Retirement breakfast for Assistant Professor Robert Nedwick on January 07, 2015 after 15 years with the department of chemical engineering.

Since 2000, Bob has done an extraordinary job teaching the chemical engineering senior design course, Design of Chemical Plants (ChE 470), providing students with a strong practical perspective on chemical engineering design.

In addition, Bob has also developed a new course on Chemical Process Safety (ChE 452) which is currently the most popular undergraduate elective in the curriculum with plans for Chemical Engineering 452 to become a required course after the next curriculum revision.

Congratulations Bob.

It is my pleasure to announce that Bob Nedwick has received a special Faculty Award from ConocoPhillips in recognition of his outstanding contributions to teaching in Process Design and Process Safety.

This award is part of the ConocoPhillips Faculty Sponsorship program - only 5 awards were given this year to faculty members in Engineering across the U.S. (and only 2 of those were sponsored by the "downstream" business units).

In addition to the recognition, the award includes an unrestricted gift of $50,000. Congratulations to Bob on this nice recognition of all his work here at Penn State.
