Congratulations to the 172 Chemical Engineering graduates who, after many years of inquisitive thought, dedicated study, and impressive self-discipline, received their official diplomas at the University of Waterloo’s Spring Convocation on Saturday, June 16th, 2018.
Professor of chemical engineering Costas Tzoganakis and University of Waterloo startup Tyromer Inc. are poised to change the way the world handles its scrap tires. Judging by their recent collection of awards, their innovative, sustainable technology is getting noticed.
A big congratulations to PhD candidate Gregory Lui for his exciting achievements at the 2018 national Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition. He made UWaterloo and the department of Chemical Engineering proud with his engaging and informative summary of his photocatalysis research. The 3MT judges and audience were impressed too – he headed back to Waterloo with a second place finish and the People’s Choice award.
Gregory Lui, the University of Waterloo’ 3MT 2018 winner, placed fifth at the provincial Three Minute Thesis competition at York University in April, where he competed against twenty of the best presenters in Ontario. Congratulations Gregory!
