Esso Higher Education Support Scheme

The Department of Chemical Engineering, Cambridge University, has been successful in its application for an Esso Higher Education Support Scheme Award for the year 2000. This money has enabled us to establish a CAD (Computer Aided Design) Centre within our existing computer facility and the new area was opened on Friday, 10 November 2000 by Peter Laird from Esso.

The new centre includes six new workstations with 21 inch monitors running the latest version of the HYSYS process simulation package and AutoCAD LT.

Professor Chase said, "We consider that familiarity with the latest CAD techniques is an important feature of the industrial training provided in our undergraduate course. This award from EHESS enables us to achieve that objective by providing both the hardware and software components to construct a state-of-the-art CAD facility."
