Students Participate in 2020 ChemE Day

Students participated in a round-table career discussion, networked with industry partners, and refined their resumes at ChemE Day in January. The department’s annual career and resume workshop connected 90 students with four industry partners.

“We had an enthusiastic group of students attend this year,” said Cynthia Sain, Chemical Engineering undergraduate advisor.

Student interest encouraged industry partners to continue mentoring well past the event’s end.

“It is really a pleasure to work with chemical engineering students and help them with their resumes,” said Myron Barnett, human resources manager at WestRock.

This is the second year that Barnett has attended ChemE Day. He said he looks forward to this event because it is well organized, and he gets to meet students who will participate in internships at his company’s paper mill.

Thank you to our industry partners who attended, CDM Smith, Coca Cola, ExxonMobil, and Westrock; to our Chemical Engineering Peer Advisors (ChEPAs) and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) volunteers; and to all of the students who made it to this year’s event. Your participation helped to make ChemE Day a success!
