Research projects are a major part of the coursework for Chemical Engineering students in their fourth year at Cambridge, leading to the MEng degree. The students are required to undertake a piece of original research in pairs or singly. In addition to a final report on their work, they are required to give a 6 minute presentation and produce a poster. There were three sessions, on 2nd, 4th and 10th March 2011.

The prize winners on 4 March were Wenting Hu and Adam Eales, Getting oil off rock: water, oil, solid interactions. The runners up were Wui Leng Heng and Daniel Tay, Benchmarking of Engine Combustion Models.
The prize winners on 10 March were Adam Morgan and Anand Ashok, Multidimensional microscopy for disease diagnostics. The runners up were Olesya Nikiforova and Stanislaw Pstrokonski, Preparation of metal oxides for CO2 capture.
