Cambridge University Chemical Engineering Society

The Cambridge University Chemical Engineering Society (or CUCES for short) is a student-run society, which organises both careers and social events for undergraduate and postgraduate students in the department.

In 2021/22, our society will be busy organising many careers-related events such as talks, presentations and workshops with the help of our industry partners and alumni working in relevant sectors. We will also help coordinate interview preparation and professional skills workshops and will be continuing our networking events over the summer and term time with a greater emphasis on start-up and sustainability-focused companies.

Looking ahead, we already have many exciting plans underway: a few careers events in Easter term and the potential for an in-person end-of-year social event; a busy Michaelmas term to provide opportunities for students to explore possible careers after Cambridge; followed by a Lent term with chances for students to learn more about research opportunities and develop their professional skills through workshops and seminars. Circumstances permitting, our Christmas and Annual dinners should also be another event that students look forward to. We also plan to organise many fun in-person and virtual socials throughout term time to accompany these events!

Moreover, for those considering a career in academia, we will be organising presentations from current PhD students, who will share their experiences and insights into their research projects. Integration between various year groups is something that the committee has been trying to improve year after year and we hope to achieve this through these talks as well as through the introduction of a ‘Chemical Engineering family’ scheme.

The CUCES team wants to support all of our members in all aspects of their academic life, as far-ahead as graduate careers and as close as their everyday studies in the department. The whole committee is very much looking forward to taking up our roles and continuing to build on the success of our previous committee.
