paper science center

The Wollenberg Paper and Bioresource Science Laboratory continues to provide students with much more hands-on training in laboratory and pilot plant settings than most other degree programs at the UW. Students have the opportunity to work with pulping and bleaching of both woods and non-woods, as well as the opportunity to assist with running the pilot papermachine. Students who work on the machine early in the program will have a leg up on students when they take the BSE 436 papermaking class in their senior year. Students who work in the lab also have the opportunity to learn TAPPI Test Methods in the physical and optical testing of pulp and paper.

Wollenberg Paper and Bioresource Science Laboratory clients often have a project and then will look for an intern for the following summer.

Senior students working in the Laboratory are often given project management responsibilities that require them to recruit, train and direct other students to complete a project. This structure provides them with some early supervisory experience, as well as research responsibility.
