Writing for Publication Bootcamp
CHEMMAT’s Department Research Committee organised a Writing Bootcamp for our postgraduate students on July 13 and 14.
32 students attended, and the Bootcamp received a lot of positive feedback and provided a great experience for the students.
We would like to thank Emeritus Professor John Chen for giving his fascinating seminar on “Publishing Wisely.”
Enginuity Day was held on Thursday, 15 July from 8 am – 4 pm. It was for all year 13 female high school students and we had 170 students register to attend. Each year, the Faculty of Engineering opens its doors to high school girls for Enginuity, aimed at informing young women about the exciting possibilities of careers in engineering.
Various workshop activities demonstrated the creativity and problem-solving processes that engineers use in real life while giving students an opportunity to try engineering hands-on. Professional engineers, lecturers and current students were there to talk to students about engineering careers, and what it’s like to study here at the University of Auckland.
CHEMMAT’s Dr Filicia Wicaksana and Dr Shan Yi were the leaders from CHEMMAT.
