The featured student this week is Christopher Scott, a chemical engineering major from Loudon, Tennessee, who worked as a co-op student at SABIC Innovative Plastics in Mt. Vernon, Indiana.
Scott worked specifically in CPP Resin. His responsibilities and projects involved EHS items to reduce safety concerns as well as improving the efficiency of processes in the plant. The chemical operations environment is a challenging environment to work in, but he found that to be beneficial to learning and growing as an engineer. In addition, a key lesson he acquired from this challenge was that good communication is key to being able to solve problems and learn from the experience from others.
