First-hand career highlights from some of our graduates

At the Careers Panel event on 8 November 2016, our undergraduate students enjoyed hearing about the experiences and career highlights of some of our graduates who are now working in very varied roles across a whole range of industry sectors.

The speakers discussed their careers since leaving Cambridge, including factors such as work-life balance, desired organisational values and the types of corporate support available.  The event also provided our students with some recruitment opportunities.

The students commented on how grateful they were for being able to hear first-hand about the career highlights of the Chemical Engineers on the panel and the valuable advice the experts were able to give. Ray Fan, CUCES Careers Rep and Panel Moderator, said it was, "An inspiring and memorable afternoon with an interesting group of speakers."

Peter Harding from the University of Cambridge Careers Office praised the advice given by graduates and commented, "The Cambridge Chemical Engineering degree has one of the highest employment rates of any degree, because of the very impressive record of the curriculum and the way engineers work."
