Stephanie Wettstein Wins an Award From the American Institute of Chemical Engineers

Stephanie Wettstein, associate professor in the department of chemical and biological engineering at Montana State University, received the Education and Outreach Award from the American Institute of Chemical Engineers. Dr. Wettstein was honored for “engaging students with novel teaching materials to improve student learning.”

Dr. Wettstein is developing a new set of computer applications that will allow students to interact with images of equipment commonly used in her chemical engineering lab. The goal is to provide a more visual means of learning and offer students a way of searching out information independently.

“It’s exciting to receive this recognition highlighting the educational opportunities we provide for our students,” said Dr. Wettstein, who teaches a junior-level class about chemical engineering unit operations as well as a related senior-level lab course.

Dr. Wettstein joined the faculty at Montana State University in 2012 and was promoted to associate professor in 2019. She is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, where she majored in paper science. Dr. Wettstein earned a master’s degree and a Ph.D. in chemical engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder.
