Work Experience Lands Chemical Engineering Graduate Top Job

A Chester student has turned failure into success with the help of the placements with one of the many companies who work with the University.


Dion Noorani, 22, who is from Liverpool, graduated from the University of Chester with a BEng degree in Chemical Engineering. Like other students on the science and engineering courses at Chester, Dion benefitted from the usual 4-5 week placements at the end of his first and second years of study. This then led to the extra placement with Ultromex and finally a full-time graduate job.


Dion said: "Chemical Engineering is a challenging subject but I'm so happy that I've now graduated into a top job with a world class company. My last placement with Ultromex has now turned into my dream job with the opportunity to work in Europe on the design of a brand new process!"


Chris Evans from Ultromex takes up the story: "Dion did a great job and you could see his confidence growing with each day in the lab. What started as a voluntary placement quickly became a paid one as Dion soon became an asset to the company. It gave him a strong purpose to be working and earning while he was studying to repeat his exams at the end of the year."
