Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology

CUCES finalists

CUCES, the Cambridge University Chemical Engineering Society, has been selected as one of five finalists for the Best University Society in the National Placement and Internship Awards. The five finalists were picked out of 50 entries.

All undergraduate students of this department are members of CUCES, which lies at the heart of all student-related social and career activity within the department. They say, "Our raison d'etre is to promote social events and interest in chemical engineering and in all industries in which chemical engineering principles are applied."

The presentation took place on the 20th January 2011 and unfortunately CUCES did not win, but it was a very enjoyable experience for the attendees. The day involved career engagement sessions, presentations, a key-note speaker and the awards ceremony. PsyCardiff were the winners.
