Our busy stand at the 2018 UCT Postgraduate Showcase - a great opportunity to show Undergrads what we're all about and that Chemistry is the place to be!
Many funding deadlines start falling due from mid-year for the next year's studies. This includes the NRF Freestanding, Innovation and Scarce Skills Masters and Doctoral Scholarships. Be sure to catch these before it's too late!
UCT Chemistry Department staff and Science postgrad students are taking time out to take part in the new Thandokhulu Science Initiative (ThaScI), which aims to assist learners at Thandokhulu High School (THS) with their Science Curricula.
Prof Kelly Chibale was named one of Fortune Magazine's 50 World's Greatest Leaders in 2018.
Three of our PhD students were capped at the April Graduation ceremony this year. Congratulations to Antonina, John, and Savannah!
They had to wait a few months more than usual due to the end-year grad being re-scheduled to this year, but this didn't dampen any spirits as another jubilant Honours class came to be capped at the April Graduation.
The SACI/RSC Young Chemists' Symposium is an annual gathering of Chemistry postgraduates from tertiary institutions in the Western Cape during which they have an opportunity to present their current research.
The Chemistry Department has increased its ranks significantly in the last month. We now have our very own worm farm...
The Western Cape water crisis has forced all of us to think carefully about how we use water. Not only as individuals, but also in the collective context of our work and studies. To this end, our indomitable Chemical Safety Officer Monique Muller (and the Science Faculty and Chemistry’s official Water Champion) has been getting us all to think carefully about saving - and not only to talk about doing it, but to implement it as well.
Congratulations to Ibiye Dagogo and Adrien Ndamyabera, who were recently elected to be the 2018 PG representatives on the Science PG Students' Council.
Monique Muller (Chemical Safety Officer for Chemistry & Chemical Engineering) presented Chemistry’s UCT accredited SHE Representative Laboratory Safety Short Course on 13 February.
The Chemistry Department is pleased to announce that Prof Kelly Chibale has attained an A-rating with the National Research Foundation.
