There is a safety minute at the beginning of each period. Students are encouraged to select a topic from on-the-job or off-the-job activities. There are online materials to assist in preparation for the safety minute discussion.

Speakers should plan to end at 4:40 to allow at least 10 minutes for questions and discussion.

Students may make up seminars by attending seminars by watching recorded sessions online or attending other relevant seminars at BYU. The Mechanical Engineering department holds seminars on Monday at 4 PM in 381 CB. Below is a link to the current schedule of seminar speakers.

Mechanical Engineering Graduate Seminar

Another opportunity is the Modeling and Optimization Symposium that is conducted via Webinar on most Tuesdays (typically 9 AM). Some of the sessions are cross-listed with the graduate seminar while others are hosted from remote locations.

Modeling and Optimization Symposium

Many of these lectures will also be of interest to chemical engineering students and faculty. The events are cross-listed to raise awareness of the opportunity to attend these lectures as well as the chemical engineering graduate seminar.
