Determination of Binary Mixture Diffusivities of CO2/N2 and CH4/N2 in Silicalite-1 Membranes
David Carter
In order to mitigate the effects of global warming, technologies to capture greenhouse gases such as CH4 and CO2 must be further developed and optimized. Silicalite-1 is a type of zeolite, and so has a large internal surface area as well as relatively small pores; properties which allow effective separation of the gases of interest in this study by surface diffusion. This research has therefore been conducted to characterize silicalite-1 membranes which are well suited to this application.

Application of Polynomial Chaos Expansions to Robust Control and Robust Optimization of Chemical Processes
Hector Budman
The quantification of model uncertainties and their propagation into desired outputs is a key step in robust control and optimization applications. Over the past two decades, Polynomial Chaos Expansions (PCE) have emerged as a powerful tool to propagate any form of parametric uncertainty with the least computational efforts. In this talk, I will review our recent contributions in the applications of these expansions to address some key challenges in the area of process systems engineering.

Career guide: Engineering and technology
The Irish Times
The first engineers invented the wheel. Today, they continue to bring scientific ideas to life, inventing and maintaining the varied products and tools we use in our everyday lives. This article would never be read without engineers to invent and maintain the printing presses that created the newspaper or the computer you’re reading it on. Technologies from mobile phones to digital televisions and 3D cinemas exist because of engineers.

The best jobs for millennials
Forbes
What are the most attractive professions for so-called millennials, born between 1981 and 2000? Completely comfortable in the digital world, fluent masters of social media and in many cases aware that STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields are the most important to study, this generation is finding success in several professions that barely existed five years ago, like social media manager, data scientist analyzing big data sets, and advertising account executive, a profession that is on its second life cycle in a new incarnation with an online focus.
