Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology

January 2021 mini-conference for PartIAs

The Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology is planning its annual January mini-conference for Cambridge Part IA students in Engineering and Natural Sciences departments. The virtual showcase will consist of a series of presentations and flash talks about the chemical engineering discipline and the undergraduate course at Cambridge, as well as an overview of the diversity of its exciting research to incoming students.

Students will have an opportunity to find out more about our undergraduate Tripos course and the important role of chemical engineering in tackling the greatest global challenges in the areas of energy, environment, sustainability and healthcare. They will also be able to talk to our current students about the course and ask our researchers questions about their individual topics of interest. 

Information for part IA students
