Open Days 2013

On Thursday 4 July and Friday 5 July 2013 the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology 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.

Potential students visited the department, accompanied by parents, friends, siblings and teachers. There were talks on the hour every hour, followed by tours of the department led by current postgraduate students. Groups were 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 see some of the experiments they might have to do as undergraduates.

The British summer seems to have finally arrived, the sun shone, and the open day sessions were very well attended.

We look forward to welcoming some of these people as undergraduates in a couple of years time.
