Meet the School 15th November 2016
If I was going to be really honest I’d say that, from childhood, I was inspired by my uncle. My uncle is a civil engineer. He’s working in different disciplines but the major discipline is in the hydro powers and electricity, these types of thing. But by education he was a civil engineer.
Meet the School 31st October 2016
The best thing about teaching is helping students to develop their skills and knowledge. It is great to explain concepts to students and then see how they start to understand and are then able to take those ideas and solve complex problems.
Research and impact 5th October 2016
My research focuses on carbon capture technologies, aiming to reduce its impact on climate change and global warming. My work employs the application of metal organic frameworks (MOFs) for carbon dioxide capture. MOFs are a class of porous physical adsorbents that attract carbon dioxide selectively and store it in their porous frameworks.
Meet the School 30th September 2016
All of those things make it quite harmful to the environment. So as with a lot of other technologies at the moment, we’re trying to find cleaner ways of doing things. So my research is based on a cleaner way of cleaning our waste water.
Student experience 17th August 2016
Graduation. It is a momentous and life altering day. It’s the day you begin your post-student life, a thought which, depending on your plans beyond university, can be either scary or exciting. Regardless of your thoughts of life after pot noodle dinners and spending time at the pub when you shouldn’t be (and studying endlessly, of course), the day itself is a day for celebration.
Meet the School 29th July 2016
And I told the person that was taking us around that I wanted to be able to produce that flow sheet. And they said, ‘well then you’ve got to be a Chemical Engineer’. And I said ‘okay, I’m going to be a Chemical Engineer’. I was nine at this time!
Meet the School 27th June 2016
My research involves the manufacture of formulated products. So I think a lot of people would recognise formulated products as, sort of, everyday items that they use. So things like shampoos, conditioners, toothpaste. And ice cream and mayonnaise and things like that.
Welcome to CEAS 23rd June 2016
I’d tell them that there are fantastic, well-paid, and exciting jobs waiting for them if they study STEM subjects. And that they should not be afraid to challenge themselves intellectually.
Chemical engineers at work 26th May 2016
In the next 5-10 years I hope to be a chartered engineer working on oil and gas projects across the world.
Meet the School 29th April 2016
Well I’m a Research Associate, also known as a PDRA. It’s a really special position within the universities because almost all of us are attached to different projects. So although we are part of the University, we are basically just linked with that one project.
