Teaching Consortium companies

CEB is delighted to welcome ABB and Granherne as new members of its teaching consortium. ABB is well known for its leading role in the power, automation and process industries and Granherne is one of the world's foremost engineering consultancies specialising in the hydrocarbon and energy industry with experience spanning all types of offshore, onshore, and downstream projects.

The Teaching Consortium at the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology at the University of Cambridge has been in operation for 13 years and is currently in its fifth phase. Originally assembled to assist and advise with the transition between the two-year ("Old regulations") and three-year ("New regulations") undergraduate MEng course in the late 1990s, the Teaching Consortium today forms our external industrial teaching advisory board. Consortium members actively support all aspects of process design teaching and professional skills training on the undergraduate MEng course whilst also providing regular advice on MEng curriculum development from an employer's point of view. In addition, Consortium members support graduate research by sponsoring projects and travel bursaries on the doctoral training programme as well as the MPhil ACE course.

Professor Nigel Slater, Head of Department said, "The Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology values the support it obtains from the industrial members of the Teaching Consortium, both in terms of the advice and guidance we obtain that enables us to educate our students in the best possible way to meet the demands of industry and through the financial support that benefits our teaching directly through the provision of resources. By participating in the Teaching Consortium, companies gain the opportunity to present themselves to our students and influence their educational experience so that our students can make better informed decisions about their career choices. In this way the Teaching Consortium benefits both the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology and its industrial members."
