Open Days 2004

photo On Thursday 1 July and Friday 2 July 2004 the Department of Chemical Engineering held Open Days for sixth formers and pre-sixth form. This was an opportunity find out what Chemical Engineering is, to discover what Chemical Engineers do, to see the teaching and research facilities, to meet some of the staff and to get details on the course at Cambridge University.

The days were very well attended, with over a hundred potential students visiting the department, accompanied by parents, friends, siblings and teachers. There were tours of the department on the hour every hour, led by current postgraduate students. The group in the photograph was led by Dan Cooney. He was also an undergraduate here so could give a description of the course and what it's like to be a student here, based on very recent experience. The group was shown the lecture rooms, the library, the tea room (which is very important for the social life of the department) and various research laboratories. When they reached the Teaching Laboratory, they had the opportunity to try their hands at some of the experiments they might have to do as undergraduates. This was supervised by Technician John Watson.

The Open Day was organised by Teaching Fellow, Mike Goodson
