3rd Pro Field Trip 2017

The CAPE 3rd pro field trip has been a pivotal part in the education of under graduate chemical and process engineers here at the University of Canterbury for decades. This year thirty students followed our call to an eye-opening introduction to industry. What an event it was.

We travelled to the Taranaki region where STOS (Shell Todd Oil Services), Methanex and Ballance Agri-Nutrients were our hosts. We were welcomed, equipped with our steel-capped safety boots, with open arms and we saw a lot of stainless steel vessels, pumps, instruments and valves during our site-visits as you would expect for chemical plants.

It has been a great pleasure organising this trip. I would like to use this occasion to thank STOS, Methanex and Ballance Agri-Nutrients for welcoming us on site and thank all students for their professional behaviour, teaching Matt how to play table tennis using a text book and leaving the base camp unharmed.
