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. 

Zoom Tutoring (For Spring 2020, Geek Squad will be accessible via Zoom)
Just sign in with your questions, our tutors will be available via Zoom during the hours listed below. Please note, these sessions will NOT be recorded
