Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology

CUCES Committee 2019&2020

The Cambridge University Chemical Engineering Society (CUCES ) is a student run society, which organises both careers and social events for undergraduate and post graduate students in the department.

A note from the 2019-2020 CUCES President:

Hello! My name is Mabel Qiao, reading CETIIA at Trinity College and President for the CUCES committee 2019-20. Joining this shiny new department at West Cambridge, CUCES has always been delivering various workshops, talks and fun events that bring together chemeng students from all colleges and two Part I’s. All of it would not have been possible without the hard work and commitment of our previous committee. Hence, I am extremely grateful and at the same time, really excited to be part of the new team for the upcoming year, joined by Thuza Naing as Secretary, Oscar Sauchelli as Treasurer, James Simkins as Careers Representative, Elliot Vaughan as Social Secretary and Bowen Huang as IT & Publicity Officer.


Looking ahead we already have many exciting plans underway: a special Easter term treat is around the corner for all you hard-working chemengers; a busy Michaelmas term to provide opportunities for everyone to explore how you may want to start your career after Cambridge; followed by a Lent term with more chances to develop your professional skills through workshops and to learn more about research opportunities. Of course, our Christmas dinner and annual dinner are not to be forgotten. We also plan to organise many casual and fun social events throughout term time to accompany those exercises!

The CUCES team wants to support all our members in all aspects of our chemeng life, as far-ahead as graduate careers and as close as your everyday study in CEB. The whole committee is very much looking forward to taking up our roles and to continue building on the success of our previous committee. If you want to get in contact, please do not hesitate to email me at or to simply catch up during tea breaks!
