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 Department 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 Department 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 Department 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.
Student experience 31st March 2016
The ride is in aid of Breast Cancer Now, the largest breast cancer charity in the UK, which has the aim of ensuring everyone diagnosed with the disease after 2050 survives. Once I put my name down and my deposit was paid, I had to get stuck in. If I didn’t, my deposit would be lost (which, as a student, wasn’t something I could even bear thinking about).
Meet the Department 23rd March 2016
Chemical Engineering is a very diverse course so you get people from all over the world – different languages, different cultures – a lot of whom I’m still in touch with right now. And I made some really great friends who are now some of the best friends that I’ve ever had.
