”It is very gratifying, of course. We work hard to be at the forefront of the research we conduct, and have been successful in attracting grants, both nationally and internationally. We are also a sought-after partner in both academia and industry.”, says professor Hanna Härelind, Head of Department, Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at Chalmers.
“For our students, this means that they receive an education with insight into the research front, which provides a good basis for them to be able to contribute to the sustainable technical solutions of the future.”, she says.
Committed teachers and researchers
“It is a recognition of the department's committed teachers and researchers as well as the teaching and support that we provide for our students. It also naturally means that Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at Chalmers gets extra luminosity when recruiting students, both nationally and internationally.”, says Dr Krister Ström, Vice Head of Department, Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at Chalmers.
“This only consolidates that our programmes in the chemistry-related subjects, including biochemical ones, deliver engineers who remain very attractive to employers in all sectors of society”, says professor Lars Öhrström, Head of Programme Chemical Engineering at Chalmers.
