Research and Projects
Research is basically designed to solving particular existing problems. For this reason therefore, there is always a much larger audience eager to support research that is likely to be profitable or solve problems of immediate concern. As the Association, we also must understand how research impact our decision making.
Just like the famous Ben Bernanke once put it
“The more important reason is that the research itself provides an important long-run perspective on the issues that we face on a day-to-day basis. ”
We are also much enthusiastic and driven towards encouraging our members to carry out Research and Projects in different aspects of Engineering. Besides Projects being part and parcel of the Course load, as young and enterprised chemical engineers in the making ought to tune their minds at some areas like these.
“I believe in innovation and that the way you get innovation is you fund research and you learn the basic facts. ” -Bill Gates
Research is very vital to our everyday decision making. It arms you from wrong information and save time and money. It is important to your success as you take on life’s challenges and career decisions making.
Research is actually an act of studying something carefully and extensively in order to attain deep knowledge in the same. For being successful, research should be systematic, arranged, summarized and recorded properly. It can also be creative, exploring or just reassuring in nature.
We do advocate networking, teamwork and togetherness during the whole process of Research as this broadens the scope of information sourcing and career professionalism.
Currently we do have a group of brilliant Chemical engineering students in final year 2015/2016 who are working on a variety of Research topics as will be listed.
