Electrochemistry Workshop

About

Workshop Dates: June 13-14, 2024

Application Deadline: March 15, 2024

The Electrochemistry Workshop for CASFER graduate students, postdocs, junior faculty, and industry members during the summer serves a vital purpose in bridging the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical application. In the field of electrified process for nutrient recovery, electrochemistry plays a pivotal role, and providing students with hands-on experience in this field is essential for their academic and professional development. 

 

The workshop aims to impart practical skills and deepen the understanding of electrochemical processes, allowing scholars to translate classroom concepts into real applications. By engaging in practical experiments, participants will gain insights into the complexities of electrochemical systems and learn how to troubleshoot the most common experiments in the field.  

The workshop takes place on Thursday and Friday, June 13-14, 2024; participants are expected to arrive before Thursday, June 13 to ensure being ready for the workshop Thursday morning. The workshop will be held at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, TX. 

This event is open to members and non-members of CASFER. Participants of national and international institutions are welcome to the workshop.  

We have few spots left. If you are still interested in joining us, please send a message to casfer@ttu.edu with the subject "Last Minute Application."

Schedule

The CASFER Electrochemistry Workshop takes place over two days. Both days are action-packed, and feature a combination of lectures on electrochemistry and work in the lab on electrochemical practices.
