In 2019-20 the answer is: YES. The new Chemical Engineering Learning Commons (CMLC) opened in fall 2019 (room 310). The coordinator for 2019-20 is Jacob LeBarre (email@example.com). The CMLC is staffed Monday through Thursday 6-8pm for the weeks that classes are in session.
Michigan Tech has in place many resources to offer if you find you need help with the challenging chemical engineering curriculum. Resources include:
- Chemistry Learning Center
- Math Learning Center
- Physics Learning Center
- First-Year Engineering Learning Center
- Chemical Engineering Coaching Center – this is run by the Michigan Tech AIChE Student Chapter; contact them for operating hours and offerings.
- Other Michigan Tech Learning Centers
- Remember also that your instructors and teaching assistants are a great source of help on your coursework and learning. Often the most effective tactic is to attend office hours with prepared questions.
In addition, there are some web-based resources that may be helpful with chemical engineering subjects:
- Khan Academy – This website has a large number of short videos that can help with math, statistics, chemistry, physics and other subjects.
- DrMorrisonMTU – Michigan Tech’s own Dr. Morrison has a YouTube channel with short videos on mass and energy balance problems as well as fluid mechanics problems. Email her with suggestions for new videos for the site.
- LearnChemE – The University of Colorado at Boulder with support of the National Science Foundation has created a large website of screencast lectures on chemical engineering topics. If you find some favorite videos on this site, please let us know and we’ll share them with your classmates.
