Patrick Davies 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.
Patrick Davies is currently in Part IIB of his Chemical Engineering MEng course and he says, "I was fortunate enough to be nominated by the department, and was invited for a couple of short interviews at the Salters' Institute in London. I was asked about my career plans, my understanding of issues facing the UK chemical industry and why I enjoy Chemical Engineering. After finishing the MEng course year, I will be going travelling for six months, before starting with ExxonMobil in their European engineering office in February 2010."
