Summer Challenge 2016: Engineering Solutions from Nature

On July 26th, 10 talented prospective engineers completed a Summer Challenge. They learned about the UCL departments of Chemical Engineering and Biochemical Engineering, and about the Institute of Making. They learned about fuel cells, fluorescent algae and catalysts, among other things, and they also saw how chemical engineers contribute to producing pharmaceuticals. Inspired by nature, the 10 students then successfully completed an individual project and presented enthusiastically their refreshing ideas. We wish these young scientists the best of luck for their future career, and we hope to see them in our classrooms in 2017.

Congratulations to Professor Paola Lettieri for being appointed Academic Director for UCL East!

Professor Lettieri, currently Professor of Chemical Engineering and Vice-Dean (Strategic Projects) in UCL Engineering Sciences, has been appointed Academic Director for UCL East. A UCL PhD, with five years industrial experience at BP, Professor Lettieri joined UCL in 2001 as a Research Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, the first female engineer to be awarded the Academy’s RAEng Fellowship. As a Professor of Chemical Engineering, she won a prestigious Senior Research Fellowship from the Royal Academy of Engineering and the Leverhulme Trust for her work on nuclear waste management. She has played a key role in the development of the UCL East project since 2014, leading the development of the engineering activities at the QEOP, working with the Faculties across UCL, and engaging with the V&A and the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC).
