Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology


Experts from relevant industry sectors will take part in a career panel exercise to share their expertise and professional experiences with our students and advise them on career-related matters of interest. Students will have a chance to meet industry reps and find out more about the varied career options available to them, which can help them make better informed decisions when faced with pressing questions regarding a specific career path to take.

Career Panel Event with Industry Reps

Get thorough insights into a diverse range of chemical engineering and biotech career options!

The annual CEB Careers Panel Event returns to CEB on Tuesday 31 October with a selected group of industry representatives, who will be telling undergraduates about their own experiences in their day-to-day roles.

Industry reps will share highlights from their career journey and students, will not only have an opportunity to ask panel members questions about their professional experiences, but will also get extremely valuable career tips and good guidance on job applications.

The event will kick off at 1 pm with a lunch in the Atrium with corporate reps followed by the Career Panel session in LT1.  Industry Panel Members will first give a brief introduction each before taking part in an open Q&A where they will answer career-related questions from the student audience. CUCES Careers Rep Liam Emmett will act as Panel Moderator on the day. 

The Event will be rounded off with an informal networking drinks Reception with reps and allow students to make important connections in industry. Undergrads could then approach individual reps to ask more specific questions about the career choices available to them in relevant Chemical Engineering and Biotech fields and potential graduate schemes and potential internship opportunities available.
