Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology


Mark Rose has been with the Department of Chemical Engineering for about six years. He has been a member of the cleaning team, but is now heading off to pastures new.

On Friday, 28 April 2006, Head of Department Professor Howard Chase presented him with a card signed by most of the staff and students. Mark said in his parting message, "I shall be heading for London with five pounds tightly grasped in my hand and will hopefully find my fortune, as they tell me the streets are paved with gold! I will sadly miss the many people who have become familiar faces over the years." In his speech Howard suggested he might need more than five pounds in London and hoped the whip round would help out. Mark thanked everyone for the gift and said how much he'd enjoyed working here and how time had flown by.

We wish him every happiness in the future.
