Following our highly-successful membership recruitment programme at the start of the session, the University of Leeds SPE Student Chapter committee has dazzled members with a flurry of activities, reports Chapter Publicity and Marketing Officer Abu Hafiz.

On 10 October, around 40 members and non-members gathered at Pole Position Indoor Karting, to race against each other in three-man teams. The entertaining event provided an opportunity to get to know each other, strengthened the Chapter’s cohesiveness and, above all, gave members a unique 90-minute karting experience!

Mohammed Mahmud, a third-year Chemical Engineering student, said: “It was a fantastic and fun experience which I didn’t want to see end.”

The following week, our Academic Guest Lecture, ‘Observing pressure, hydrodynamic mechanisms and overpressures in the earth’, was delivered by Dr Frans Kets, a former Shell Oil Company Geophysicist with more than 32 years of experience in research, development and training in the oil industry. He is also currently a research fellow for CiPEG – University of Leeds. Using layman’s terms, Dr Kets scaled-down the complexities of the subject to include everyone and his insightful lecture was appreciated by all who attended. The hour-long event took place at the University’s School of Process, Environmental and Material Engineering (SPEME).
