First-hand experience from Imperial College London: Join us to learn about the importance and efficient implementation of a DoE training program in chemistry.
Meeting the future needs of the chemical industries will require scientists with advanced skills in chemical synthesis, reaction engineering, analytical chemistry, automation and data analysis. The Centre for Rapid Online Analysis of Reactions (Roar) at Imperial College has been developing new approaches to training multidisciplinary chemists and engineers. Design of Experiments (DoE) is one of the new essential skills that has become an integral part of Imperial College graduate training, both in the classroom and the research laboratory.
This hour-long webinar features Ben Deadman, the facility manager for Roar at Imperial College London, as well as Volker Kraft from JMP’s academic program.
During this webinar you will learn:
- Why chemists should learn about DoE
- How to get started with teaching DoE
- What barriers may be encountered
- Best practices teaching DoE in chemistry
- Opportunities to collaborate with Roar at Imperial College
