Students from the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering bring home a variety of prizes in technical and non-technical competitions at the 67th Canadian Chemical Engineering Conference held by the Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering.
The annual conference was held in Edmonton, at the University of Alberta and themed "Chemical Engineering – Future Solutions", aiming to highlight the vision of young engineers in fields of chemical and biological engineering.
Students from the faculty’s Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering earned three awards in both technical and non-technical competitions.
Midia Shikh Hassan won first place in the Reg Friesen Student Paper Competition, in which students must present a paper of general interest concerning the critical evaluation of their educational experiences, innovative learning/teaching strategies and materials as well as other topics that address chemistry or chemical engineering education, followed by an oral presentation.
Linda Tang won third place at the Robert G. Auld Student Competition, which allows students to speak on any aspect of chemical engineering, including work experience, design or research projects.
Finally, the third place of the Hatch Plant Design competition was awarded to the uOttawa team, made up of Gagandip Grewal, Roch Vaillancourt, Talal Omar and Brian Reinholt.
The Faculty is proud to see the great work of its students being recognized and celebrated on a national scale and wishes to congratulate all awardees!
