Clementine Chambon has been awarded one of this year's Graduate prizes from The Salters' Institute of Industrial Chemistry.
Each year, the Salters' Institute invites every UK department of Chemistry or Chemical Engineering to nominate one final year undergraduate. The selectors are looking for candidates who will ultimately be able to occupy leading positions in the UK Chemical Industry.
Clementine is currently in Part IIB of her Chemical Engineering MEng course and she says, "I was honored to receive the Department nomination this year, and was invited for two interviews at the Salters' Institute in London. The panel was interested to know why I enjoy Chemical Engineering, and I was asked about my future career plans and the current issues facing the UK chemical industry. After finishing the MEng degree, I will be going traveling for three months, before kick-starting a career in biotechnology by pursuing a PhD in lignocellulosic biofuels at Imperial College."
