Student Seminar Day 2022

On April 28th, seven graduate students from the Department of Chemical Engineering presented their research as part of Student Seminar Day. Students of Drs. Dominik Barz, Scott Parent, Michael Cunningham, Robin Hutchinson, Jeffrey Giacomin, Martin Guay and Kim McAuley showcased their research in a wide variety of subdisciplines including Process Modelling, Control Engineering, and Polymer Science and Technology. Students had the opportunity to further develop their communication skills and receive feedback from researchers in the department.  

To learn more about each student’s research, please see our book of abstracts.
