“It’s satisfying to know that something I’m working on will have an impact”: Completing a UROP in Chemical Engineering
This summer the department is hosting several Undergraduate Research Opportunities Programme (UROP) placements, which enable students to take part in research activities at Imperial College London. As well as providing practical research experience, undertaking a UROP can help students develop their interest in specialised subjects, or get a sense of whether a particular career path is right for them.
Henry and Aniket are two Chemical Engineering undergraduates who will spend ten weeks over the summer with the department’s Analytical Services creating a series of videos which will teach new staff and students how to use equipment correctly and safely.
They spoke to us at the beginning of their placement to tell us why they chose to complete a UROP this summer and what their experience has been like so far.
