CERS introduces next-gen chemical engineers to industry leaders

UNSW-based Chemical Engineering Research Society’s CRC-sponsored networking night on 2 June introduced Chem. Eng students and post-grads to industry reps.

“Our first and biggest-ever professional networking event had >160 people from over 40 organisations attending, ranging from students and academics to industry leaders and award-winning start-ups,” PhD Scientia scholar and CERS president Angie Davina Tjandra told the CRC.

“Food companies in attendance included Sanitarium, Arnotts, All G Foods, AB Mauri, Tip Top and many more. It was a night full of opportunities and exchange of ideas.”
