Students from the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering came back from the 66th Canadian Chemical Engineering Conference with an impressive array of awards from both technical and non-technical competitions.

The Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering (CSChE) held the event in Quebec City in mid-October to reflect its vision for solutions for a better world; the themes of sustainability and prosperity pushed participants to provide innovative ideas that contribute to improving the industry within Canada and beyond. Over the course of four days, attendees had the chance to partake in various workshops, exhibitions, and lectures that touched on subjects and challenges facing the chemical engineering community in Canada. This national event brought together experts, organizations, and students to tackle subjects pertaining to biofuels, process safety management, and nanomaterials.

Scott Proulx

Scott Proulx won 1st place in the Reg Friesen Student Oral Competition (nontechnical).

At the conference, students at the graduate and undergraduate level also had the opportunity to submit design projects, posters and research for the chance to compete against other Canadian universities such as the universities of Waterloo, Toronto, and Laval. A number of our students headed to Quebec City to compete, and returned with numerous accolades.
