*In 2007-8 a new award was created which will be presented only when it is felt that a given student has excelled such as to merit its conferring, and therefore this award may not be necessarily awarded every year. This award is presented to a student who has excelled in developing or fostering the development of a special aspect of the department/discipline:-
"Outstanding Contribution to the Development of Process & Chemical Engineering"
In 2013-14 it was again decided to make this award. It was presented to Ailbhe Connolly for her exceptional contribution to promoting the special bond that exists between the staff and students through her work with the Engineering Society and her organisation of the Engineering Ball in November 2013. Ailbhe was also very involved in the Peer Support Network in UCC and travelled to schools in her spare time to talk to students about a career in Process and Chemical Engineering, both on behalf of the Department, and of IChemE.
