Chemical Engineering Fall Co-Op - July-December 2021 (131010777)
We are excited to bring eager, talented students on board and provide them with an unparalleled co-op experience. The Entegris Campus Program consists of real work experience, cross-functional learning and development opportunities, and a variety of social and volunteering events.
The prospective co-op will help Entegris in developing novel polysulfone-type membranes for Dilute WEC application. The development involves optimizing the properties of membranes by trying new membrane formulations and membrane processing conditions followed by characterization of the developed membranes. The co-op will greatly benefit from this program by learning about the fundamentals of membrane formation, which involves major chemical engineering disciplines including transport phenomena, thermodynamics and reaction engineering. The prospective co-op will also learn how to think rationally toward solving a problem as well as how to carry out a systematic research.
