Graduation First Cohort Sheffield-NJTech students
Since 2011 the department runs a joint Chemistry course with Nanjing Technical University (NJTech) in China. In this course the students spent 3 years studying chemistry in China, where they are taught by a mix of NJTech staff and academics from our department. Their final (BSc) year is subsequently spent here in Sheffield.
This year was special in more ways than one. Not only did the first students on this course graduate this year together with our regular Sheffield BSc students and our MChem students, but also the president of NJTech, Prof. Huang Wei, was given an honorary PhD by the University of Sheffield.
