The Instrumentation Symposium for the Process Industries, now in its 71st year, continues to educate professionals and students in the instrumentation industry. At the symposium, practical technical papers as well as vendor exhibits are presented with a focus on education.
Dr. Sam Mannan delivered the inaugural lecture at the Hazards 25 process safety symposium celebrating the life of process safety pioneer, Professor Trevor Kletz. Kletz was a regular contributor from the outset and he remained active professionally until he passed away in 2013 at the age of 90.
Dr. El-Halwagi, a MKOPSC Faculty Fellow, has pursued the study of issues surrounding sustainability for nearly three decades. The interplay of water and energy, especially as it relates to industrial processes is the basis of his present research.
Dr. Luc Vechot, Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering at TAMU-Qatar and Director of MKOPSC-Qatar was awarded the 2015 Young Faculty Award. Dr. Vechot has worked on process safety related research topics for the last seven years.
Dr. Mashuga, a MKOPSC Faculty Fellow pursues experimental process safety in the research of perfect storms: scenarios involving varieties of dust that create powerful bursts of energy and fire when stressed by other factors.
MKOPSC faculty fellows Dr. Mindy E. Bergman and Dr. Stephanie C. Payne and their PhD student Dr. Jeremy Beus (currently at LSU) received 2014 Editor's Commendation for their paper in the Journal of Business and Psychology.
