Please join us online to hear alumnus Don Tu (BASc 2018) talk about his experiences – both as an undergraduate chemical engineering student and in his current career as a process engineer in training at Hatch Ltd. He will share details about the challenges he faced and how he used the skills and training he learned as an undergrad to succeed in a new field. Take advantage of this opportunity to learn about some real world experiences from a recent UWaterloo Chemical Engineering grad.
All graduate ChE students will receive an Outlook calendar event with webinar access details.
Everyone is welcome – If you are not a graduate ChE student, contact the Manager of Graduate Studies for the access information you need to join the webinar.
Don Tu will talk about how he progressed from an undergraduate student to an EIT.
First, he will discuss his personal experiences: what his university experiences were like, what he does at work, and how he used his university training to get his job. He will talk about the challenges he encountered along his career path and how he overcame them.
Second, he will provide some first-hand tips on how to expand upon the skills and training you've acquired as an undergraduate student to tackle projects in new fields.
Don Tu graduated with a BASc from the University of Waterloo’s Chemical Engineering program in 2018. Soon after, he began working as a Process EIT on the Pyrometallurgy team at Hatch, where he engages in plant design, conducts technology reviews and explores how the iron and steel industry is managing the transition into a low-carbon future.
