At the start of a new term and new academic year, we welcome new students to the department.
The photograph shows some of the new graduate students with Head of Department Professor Lynn Gladden at a welcome reception held on 7 October 2009. This was an opportunity for the new PhD, MPhil ACE and MBE students to meet each other and to meet the academic staff.
This year, we have 28 new PhD students, 15 enrolled for the MPhil in Advanced Chemical Engineering and 25 for the Master's in Bioscience Enterprise (MBE).
We also have 50 new undergraduates and their lectures started on Thursday 8 October 2009.
We look forward to getting to know all these people and working with them.
