Honours for chemical engineering graduates

06 December 2004

This year the Department of Chemical Engineering has a record number of students graduating with honours - 13 out of a final year of 40, eight of these with first-class honours.

The final course of their degree is titled Project and gives students the opportunity to apply their knowledge of the fundamentals of chemical engineering to solving practical research problems.

Students identify and integrate appropriate prior knowledge of fundamental principles of science and engineering to conduct the assigned investigation. Mostly in pairs, the students are allocated investigations and are supervised by academic staff. Many projects are directly related to the focus areas of the department's various research groups.

The top project this year was titled Activity of Partially Crystalline ZM5 Zeolite Catalysts by Christopher Ayres and Catherine Snowden and was supervised by Associate Professor Klaus Moeller, a member of the Catalysis Centre of Excellence.

After their research poster presentation, students celebrated at a departmental cocktail party attended by friends, alumni and industry partners.
