Student Profile(s)

André Gachette

After completing a Bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering, I wanted to further my knowledge in the subject. A Masters degree is a requirement for attaining Chartered status with the Institution of Chemical Engineers, so would be extremely valuable to me in the future.

I chose the University of Leeds because of its reputation as a well-respected school for Chemical Engineering. This fully accredited degree will also provide the opportunity to undertake a significant project in an area where research is currently limited.

The best aspect of studying this course has been the broad scope of the programme. No two modules are the same, which keeps things interesting as well as expanding your knowledge across a range of subjects.

Projects often present the opportunity to develop an intimate knowledge of a specific subject area by studying it in detail. Recently, I completed a group project themed around delayed coking – a thermal-cracking process used in petrochemical refineries. The project culminated in delivering a group presentation and preparing an informative poster that was displayed in the department.

I am currently researching the potential for using glass doped with rare earth metals to non-invasively monitor the concentration of specific molecules in the human body. It’s a relatively new and promising area of research, which is exciting to be a part of.
