Following last year’s success of the CEB - CUCES Careers Panel event, facilitated by CEB graduates and corporate partners in leading Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology industries, the event will be making a return on Monday 26 October 2015. The event is aimed at undergrad students, who will  be thinking about applying for internships in industry at the start of the new academic year. Last year’s event was a hugely popular and valuable source of career advice. It also gave students the opportunity to find out more about the different career options available to them, get great insights about working in different industries and ask industry about their day-to-day jobs and vacancies available in their companies.

The panel last year consisted of a selected group of industry representatives from disciplines chosen based on student feedback. Representatives from BP, Johnson Matthey, Jacobs, Arthur D. Little, P&G JP Morgan, etc…

The event format this year will be similar to last year's with brief introductions and a Q & A session but this time there will also be a fun speed networking session with panel members to ensure students get mingling with as many industry experts as possible (see event programme below)

Event programme


Each corporate rep will be given 3 mins max to introduce themselves and tell about their role in their company also sharing a career high and low if they so wish. During the Q&A session, industry reps in the panel will take specific questions from students in the room. This will be followed by a speed networking session where reps will be talking to students. Students will then have a chance to ask more specific information on job applications and potential job opportunities can approach individual reps to get some career advice and if applicable.

1-2 pm (LT1): Industry panel members’ introductions and Q & A

2 – 3.30 pm (Social Room): More time for more questions and mingling over lunch followed by Speed Networking

3.30- 4.30 pm (S3c Meeting room): Reps will be available for one-to-ones or to answer more specific questions from students.

Elena Gonzalez (Alumni Relations and Marketing) has sourced panel members and will be helping with the event running and publicising. She commented; 'This event is a fantastic opportunity for students to find out more about working in different industries. Expert advice will be at hand helping them make better informed decisions with regards to the career options available to them'. 

The Panel Moderator on the day will be Ray Fan (CUCES Undergraduate Careers Rep).

If you are a CEB graduate working in relevant chemical engineering and biotechnology- related industries and may be interested in contributing to this event in the future please contact Elena Gonzalez on . We’d be delighted to welcome new panel members on board who would like to give students valuable career advice whilst representing their own companies in the process.
