NJIT receives second part of $1M gift to chemical engineering department
Date:7/7/2011

eriences for students: internships, co-op activity and research.

"The new model is not simply 'professor to students' but an interactive education where research takes place in the classroom, not just at a seminar," explained Loney. "The undergraduates will be the biggest beneficiaries." Although new to many US universities and colleges, industry experience is mandatory for students at European universities. This is not new for NJIT but it will take the industry experience to the next level.

As one of the university's first departments, real-world work experience has long been incorporated into the curriculum through cooperative education with area companies. The department's faculty has also developed research partnerships with industry and government. Chemical engineering alumni hold leading positions in business, law, research and academe. The department's first baccalaureate degrees were awarded in 1923.

Today the department has an enrollment of 231 undergraduates majoring in chemical engineering, and more than 50 pursuing graduate studies. Last year, NJIT awarded 22 bachelor's degrees in chemical engineering, 32 master's degrees, and four PhDs. Chemical engineering currently enrolls the largest percentage of female students of any department in Newark College of Engineering -- 41 percent of the department's students are women.

This spring, Loney was designated a Fellow of the American Institute of Chemical Engineering, the highest honor bestowed by the professional organization. He has been recognized by NASA and the American Society for Engineering Education research contributions and received NJIT's Newark College of Engineering's Excellent in Teaching Award.

Prior to NJIT, Loney, a licensed professional engineer, practiced engineering at Foster Wheeler, MW Kellogg Company, Oxirane Chemical Company and Exxon.
