Courses Taught by Prof. Peyton

ChemEng 290B Experimental Methods

ChemEng 690A: Fundamentals of Intelligent Theses

This course is new to the curriculum and began in the spring of 2018. This is a class intended for graduate students, particularly those at early stages in their graduate career (but all are welcome). Both PhD and MS students will benefit, as we discuss skills needed for graduate students to effectively meet their thesis goals, such as:

  • How to develop the necessary skills needed to carry you through a successful thesis.

  • How to improve at scientific writing, information dissemination/presentation, literature review, teaching, and collaboration in STEM fields.

  • How to effectively manage your time so that you can get through your daily to-do list, but also achieve bigger, more long-term goals.

We meet every W and F from 2:30-3:45 for lecture, and every student will set up "milestones" over the semester toward finishing some big project. Every student is welcome to choose and define their own project, and some previous examples include: qualifying exams, manuscripts, theses, presentations, etc.
