Chem Eng First Years visit GSK

Published on: Thursday, 08 June 2017

First Year Chemical engineering undertook an excellent site visit on Friday 5th May to GSK in Currabinny, Cork.  Dr Sandra Lenihan, Lecturer in Chemical and Biopharmaceutical Engineering, CIT said: “This was the first tour undertaken by the chemical engineering class to a manufacturing site. The visit to GSK has given them great focus and drive for the next three years to complete their degrees and join a company like GSK. It was hugely beneficial to the students to interact with engineers at GSK (most of them CIT Chemical Engineer Graduates) and learn about the variety of roles and well as the international career path possibilities with a global organisation such as GSK. The students were also impressed that the patient at the end of the supply change was pivotal in every decision, as well as the importance placed on health and safety.”
