What does a day in the bulk chemicals industry, pharmaceutical industry and consultancy industry look like? In which functions will I be able to start as a chemical engineer and which career opportunities are there? When or why would I change my career?
Every chemical engineering student has probably thought about these questions and therefore Chemix organizes the career decision evening on Tuesday the 22th of November. This evening, we have invited several alumni to speak about their work experiences in the different sectors of the chemical industry. Every alumnus has his own table where snapshots of their working environment or a PowerPoint can be shown and after ten minutes you can pass onto the next alumni. Do you have some extra questions, no problem there will be a reception afterwards where you will be able to speak again with these alumni.
