The Linda and Bipin Doshi Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering hosted a reception on April 6, 2022, to express gratitude for the couple’s transformative $10 million gift to the department. Missouri S&T Chancellor Mo Dehghani and department chair Hu Yang spoke to the crowd about how the gift will help students, and the Doshis heard firsthand about students’ research.
“We will use this gift to increase our focus on biochemical engineering for the department’s sustained growth and expansion,” Yang said. “Every aspect of the department will benefit from the Doshi’s generosity.”
Bipin Doshi, ChE’62, and his wife, Linda, made the gift in October 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic delayed the reception until people could gather safely in person on campus. Attendees enjoyed food and beverages and learned more about students’ research projects.
A member of the Missouri S&T Board of Trustees and the Academy of Chemical Engineers, Doshi received an honorary doctorate in engineering and delivered S&T’s commencement address in May 2019, and he was honored among the university’s Alumni of Influence in 2016. The couple’s previous S&T support includes a $1 million gift naming the Frank Conrad Unit Operations Laboratory in James E. Bertelsmeyer Hall, the home of chemical and biochemical engineering dedicated in 2014.
