School of Chemical and Bioprocess Engineering 

We successfully launched our annual Seminar Day that took place on the 7th of March this year. The Seminar Day gives the opportunity to PhD students and Postdocs to communicate their research and network. The link of the event can be found here, https://www.ucd.ie/chembioeng/newsandevents/thefirstannualscbeseminarday/

PhD student, Postdoctoral Researcher and Academic welcome pack. 

A welcome pack is provided to every new member that joins the School of Chemical and Bioprocess Engineering. This welcome pack aims to navigate the new members as to what they need to tick off before coming to UCD, once they arrive and after their first month of being at UCD. This welcome pack allows a smooth transition of every newcomer to the School of Chemical and Bioprocess Engineering.

Electronic newsletter

Facilitating the introduction of new members to the School of Chemical and Bioprocess Engineering. Every quarter an electronic newsletter is sent out to all PhD students, Postdocs, Technicians and Academics introducing the new members that have joined the School. The newsletter includes a picture of the new School member, the Research group that they have joined (if applicable), where they are from and their hobbies. 

Virtually monthly coffee mornings 

Held every first Thursday of the month with running themes. The themes are centred around life in Ireland as to promote the smooth transition of international School members. These themes include best places to visit in Ireland, best coffee at UCD, etc.

School of Architecture, Planning and Environmental Policy: Visiting Professor and Global Architecture Initiative  

Dr Nkatha Gichuyia is visiting through the School of Architecture, Planning and Environmental Policy’s EDI initiative to bring scholars to UCD who are from countries that are not well represented amongst staff in architecture, landscape, planning and environmental policy. It also dovetails the Global Architecture Initiative in the discipline of architecture. This provides academic support and leadership on materials covering Africa, South-East Asia, South and Latin America and the Middle East. Amongst other events, Dr Gichuyia will be leading a seminar in APEP on informal settlements and urbanism.
