Chevron Tutoring Program 

The Department of Chemical Engineering offers FREE tutoring in key courses offered in the first three years of curriculum in the Chemical and Biochemical Engineering majors.

The courses we offer tutoring for generally include ECH 5, 51, 60, 140, 141, 142, 143, 145A, 145B, 152A, and 152B. Tutors are selected from the best junior and senior level students and must have already achieved excellent scores in any course they tutor. The program offers students the opportunity to ask questions in a friendly, informal setting in which they can learn with and from their peers.

Tutoring is conducted on a drop-in basis.

ChE Programming Geek Squad

The Department of Chemical Engineering is offering a new program called the ChE Programming Geek Squad. The purpose of the program is to provide non-course specific programming support to undergraduate students, with the intent of helping students to develop their programming skills as they encounter difficulties in their courses by coaching them on how to implement their ideas using programs such as Matlab, Python, Aspen Plus, and SuperPro Designer. Geek Squad tutors will primarily serve students in the Department of Chemical Engineering but the support will also be extended to all students in the College of Engineering. They will be available to hold one-on-one scheduled appointments, office hours in the chemical engineering computer lab, and occasional programming workshops.
