Two new Professors in Process and Chemical Engineering
Process and Chemical Engineering staff have been recognised with two professorial promotions; that of Professor Jorge Oliveira and Professor Maria de Sousa Gallagher.
This brings to three the number of professors in the discipline for the first time since it was founded in 1927 (it has only had four to date). Professor Oliveria also leads UCC School of Engineering and Architecture as Head of School, and the first Chemical Engineer to do so.
Warmly welcoming the news, Professor Ed Byrne reflected that it is testament to the hard work and commitment of the successful colleagues, while noting that it is serves to underline the strong growth of Process & Chemical Engineering in both student and staff numbers over the past number of years.
