This program (initiated in summer, 2006) is designed for students who have finished the sophomore level ChBE courses. Professor Meredith will lead the effort. Two ChBE courses will be offered: Thermodynamics II (ChBE 3130), and Transport Phenomena I (ChBE 3200). In addition, students will have the option to take technical, social science, or humanities electives. In the last four years, 16-22 ChBE students have participated in the program each year, and registered for ~10 credit hours. Several scholarships have been provided in the past through the generous support of Shell Oil Company. It is anticipated that Shell will again be awarding the scholarships for the Summer 2014 program.
You should apply as soon as possible by visiting www.oie.gatech.edu/apply. Based on the past experience, students who apply late may not have space available. Last year, many ChBE students were left out due to lack of dorm space. The only way to deal with this is to register for the program as early as possible. We are recommending that you apply by September 15, 2013.
If you have any questions, let me or Ms. Ami Ivanecky know. You may also contact Dr. Meredith for the GTL program.
