Energy engineer awarded Fellowship in UK Parliament

Erin Johnson, a postgraduate chemical engineering student at Imperial College London, UK, has been awarded the Ashok Kumar Fellowship 2017. She will spend three months working at the Parliamentary Office for Science and Technology (POST), with a focus on producing a parliamentary briefing note for MP’s on a relevant subject.

Erin spent five years with National Grid after graduating from Imperial College with a Masters in Chemical Engineering in 2010. She went back to Imperial in 2015 to study for her PhD, looking to establish how green gas should be deployed in the UK to maximise environmental benefits and minimise cost.

She said:

“It is my ambition to help shape evidence-based policy in energy and the environment. I hope to gain an understanding of the parliamentary process and see how researchers and industry experts can help parliamentarians develop the best policies."

UK chemical engineering intake down for the first time in more than a decade

New figures released by the University and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS), show a 12% fall in students opting to study for a degree in chemical engineering.

However, chemical engineering still remains one of the strongest engineering disciplines for female undergraduates, who account for 26% of the total 2016 intake figure.

Chemical engineers at University College Cork win teaching prize

The Department of Process and Chemical Engineering at University College Cork, Ireland, has been named the 2016 winner of the Sustainability Teaching Award.

University College Cork eventually scooped the top prize for successfully integrating sustainability teaching across the curriculum, providing good examples of interdisciplinary projects, coupled with excellent student feedback.

Chair of Process and Chemical Engineering and Programme Director, Professor Edmond Byrne said:

“This award endorses our ambition to provide students with best-in-class teaching to set them up for successful careers as chemical engineers.”

A chance to visit India and fly the flag for biochemical engineering

Innovate UK, BBSRC, EPSRC and the Department for Biotechnology of the Government of India are planning a UK-India Newton-Bhabha Fund joint call for innovative biological solutions in the area of industrial waste, to be launched in May.

To kick things off, a scoping mission to India has been planned for 20-25 March and will bring together decision makers, businesses and academics from both countries to contribute their expertise. It will focus on the specific waste issues India is facing (in certain industries) and identify potential solutions.

The organisers are keen to get a diverse range of opinions, so this is where you can really fly the flag for biochemical engineering. They are particularly interested in organisations/experts that have expertise in biological solutions for one or more of the waste streams, experience in working on waste challenges and bio-tech solutions that are relevant to India, and the capacity to represent biochemical engineering in their field and speak about the wider market for biological solutions.

If this sounds like something you want to be part of, further information and the application form to express your interest is available at: https://ktn-uk.co.uk/funding/scoping-workshop-biological-solutions-to-reducing-industrial-waste-environmental-inefficiency-and-pollution-in-india

Apply by 30 January 2017.

Travel and accommodation costs for successful applicants will be covered by the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) through Newton Fund support from Innovate UK and BBSRC.
Expressions of interest are being sought to attend a scoping meeting for a UK – India Newton Fund call

Chemical engineering research makes an impact in Parliament

Ten UK chemical engineering university departments have been selected by the IChemE for research that has had a positive impact on today’s modern world. Their projects were showcased at an event hosted by the Baroness Brown of Cambridge, and IChemE’s UK Research Committee, held in the Houses of Parliament, UK.

IChemE’s UK Research Committee Chair, Professor Raffaella Ocone, who was instrumental in selecting the final case studies said:

“The work presented here today goes beyond chemical engineering. It is an opportunity to look at the scope of knowledge and competency required of chemical engineers as practitioners in a social context. These case studies show that chemical engineering draws on many different experiences and complement technical competence with a wider socio-economic perspective.”
