Professor Larry Biegler has been selected recipient of the 2007 CACHE Award for Excellence in Computing in Chemical Engineering Education. This award, sponsored by the CACHE Corporation, is presented for significant contributions in the development of computer aids for chemical engineering education. Larry was recognized for leadership in the development of strategies and methods for process optimization, particularly for the pioneering implementation of the successive quadratic programming (SQP) method in the process simulator FLOWTRAN that has allowed many students to optimize process flowsheets. The award consists of a plaque and a $1,000 honorarium that will be presented at the Chemical Engineering Division awards banquet held at the ASEE Annual Conference, June 24-27, 2007 in Honolulu, Hawaii.
