The 2017-2018 Murray Moo-Young Biotechnology Scholarship has been awarded to two Chemical Engineering students: Paul Chen, a PhD student who is being supervised by Professor Frank Gu, and Mark Bruder, a PhD student who is being supervised by Professor Marc Aucoin.
The Murray Moo-Young Biotechnology Scholarship was established in 1982 with a donation by Distinguished Professor Emeritus Murray Moo-Young to encourage research of bioprocessing strategies in industrial biomanufacturing and environmental bioremediation.
Congratulations to Diogo de Oliveira Livera, Piaopiao Long, Aswathy Ann Thomas, and Gareth Toogood-Holmes, who won the Norman Esch Entrepreneurship Award for Capstone Design and finished third place in the IDEAs Design Analysis Competition.
Congratulations to Gregory Lui, who is completing his PhD in Chemical Engineering at University of Waterloo, for winning the University’s Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition. 3MT is an international research communication competition in which graduate students have three minutes to distill their research into a presentation that is both understandable and engaging to a non-technical audience.
Forty-one teams of fourth-year chemical engineering students presented the results of their Capstone Design projects at the annual Capstone Design Symposium, which was held March 12th in the atrium of Engineering 6. In the process of sharing their research, they demonstrated the diverse and creative nature of chemical engineering and the promise it holds for future generations.
