Members of the public are welcome to check out some impressive presentations from Western University students this week when the 17th annual Capstone Design Project Competition takes place, Friday.
More than 50 students from the department of chemical and biochemical engineering will be on hand for the event at the Western Sarnia-Lambton Research Park — teams will make presentations in one of three categories: Biomass Thermochemical Conversion Processes, Carbon Dioxide Utilization and Hydrogen Production, and Chemical Production and Resource Recovery.
First and second place prizes will be awarded in each field.
“In many ways, Capstone is the apex of these students’ learnings and the foundation for
their career prospects,” said Dr. Katherine Albion, executive director of the Western
Sarnia-Lambton Research Park. “Exciting discoveries occur all the time in the world of
academia and the Capstone competition is an excellent opportunity for students to
share in these innovative ideas and learnings with the Sarnia-Lambton community.”
Presentations are scheduled to begin at 8:45 a.m. and will continue until awards are
handed out at 1p.m.
